Wildfire Ready Events

PGE plans and prepares year-round for inclement and extreme weather conditions. In historically wet, mild Oregon, summers are getting hotter and drier, resulting in longer fire seasons. Regardless of the season or time of year, everyone has a part to play when it comes to readiness.

Your voice matters

Ahead of the 2024 fire season, we’d like to hear from you. Come learn about our 2024 Wildfire Mitigation Plan at one of our Wildfire Ready events listed below. You’ll hear from us and other members of the community on topics like Public Safety Power Shutoffs, emergency preparedness and investments being made in your community, but more importantly, this event is a great opportunity to share your ideas and help us create better ways to serve you.
