Southern California Edison (SCE) is hosting a public meeting on Tuesday, October 9, 6:30-8:30 p.m., at King Gillette Ranch to share additional information with residents and business owners in Topanga, Malibu, Hidden Hills, Calabasas, Agoura Hills, and Westlake Village who are served on a circuit that is subject to SCE’s Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) protocol.
Supervisor Sheila Kuehl is awaiting assessment from county departments and made this statement.
“The fire danger posed by utility company equipment in the Santa Monica Mountains is very real. We’re glad that Edison has put forth a proposal for mitigating that danger. At this point, relevant County departments need to assess the potential impact of that proposal. We are also hearing from our constituents who have concerns. We have asked County departments, including the Fire Department, Public Works, and the Office of Emergency management, to assess the public impact of this proposal as quickly as possible, so we can get a comprehensive understanding of how the proposal might impact communities and how we might mitigate those impacts so that people in Malibu and surrounding communities are better protected from utility-related fires, and at the same time, have what they need in the event of a fire-related power outage.”
Most residents and businesses should have received a letter from SCE that described public safety power shutoffs and encouraged them to provide Edison with updated contact information in the event the plan is implemented.
Come with your questions and concerns. Tuesday, October 9, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at King Gillette Ranch, 26800 Mulholland Hwy, Calabasas, CA.
