MENDOCINO Co., 12/15/20 — Mendocino County largely avoided being in the scope of PG&E’s planned power shut-offs this year, but it’s still possible that residents will see shut-offs during future fire seasons as the utility company works to address concerns over wildfire safety and electrical equipment. This Wednesday, PG&E will host a virtual and interactive town hall to cover the current state of the company’s wildfire safety improvements, and take questions from residents.
Here’s the details from PG&E:
