Chelan County PUD Fire Safety Outage Management

Please take advantage of the opportunity to hear directly from Chelan County PUD on this important new Power Line policy on June 18th here in Leavenworth.


A fire safety outage is a proactive power outage designed to prevent wildfire ignitions from electrical equipment during very high winds and tinder-dry conditions. Also called a public safety power shutoff, it is a rarely-used measure of last resort in Chelan PUD’s Wildfire Mitigation Program. We know the devastation that wildfires can have on a community, and we also recognize the impact on our customers when power is out. The decision to de-energize the lines is a difficult one, and will only be considered in situations where the risk to public safety is greater than the need for reliability.
