As fire season continues, Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) events may come to the city of Lompoc.

The the city wants to let residents know that the power shutoffs are a possibility for the area.

The city encourages people to sign up for local emergency notifications online, to review PG&E's local power shutoff information, to review preparation tips, and to follow the City of Lompoc on social media.
