Wildfire Preparedness and Safety

PGE plans and prepares year-round for inclement and extreme weather conditions of all kinds. Regardless of the season or time of year, everyone has a part to play when it comes to readiness.

In historically wet, mild Oregon, summers are getting hotter and drier, resulting in longer fire seasons and an overall increased risk of wildfires. Our plan is rooted in protecting people, property and natural environments by reducing the risk of wildfire.

We all have a role to play when it comes to being prepared in the event of wildfire and other emergencies.

Everyone should take steps to get prepared.
