As part of its Community Wildfire Safety Program, Pacific Gas & Electric is conducting a power shutdown drill Tuesday in the Arroyo Grande and Five Cities area.
The utility said power will not be disrupted during the drill.
PG&E said on the day of the Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) Drill, people in Arroyo Grande will see extra PG&E crews and contractor trucks in the area.
The goal of the drill is to prepare crew members to respond quickly in the event of a power shutoff.
If there is an actual PSPS event, crew members will restore power following a full inspection of de-energized power lines.
The power company’s Community Wildfire Safety Program has expanded as a response to the growing threat of extreme weather conditions and wildfires.
