As Oregon’s weather gets hotter and drier, wildfires can hit suddenly and grow quickly and create a greater likelihood of summer safety-related power outages. We’re preparing and we encourage you to prepare as well.
The light purple areas show the areas in our service territory that are currently at a higher risk for a safety-related outage. Click on an area in the live map or enter your address in the box to pinpoint your location. This map will update throughout the wildfire season with additional details and information.
For us, being prepared is a year-round effort to protect people, property and natural environments, and includes:
Inspecting, trimming and removing trees and shrubs that could cause trouble along our transmission and distribution lines.
Upgrading equipment, like replacing wood poles with fire-resistant poles, using insulated tree wire and enhancing our remote monitoring.
Working closely with local and state emergency managers, US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Oregon Department of Forestry, Tribes, fire districts and emergency responders to plan and coordinate on wildfire prevention and response.
