Possible SCE PSPS In Malibu Due To Windy, Hazardous Fire Conditions

November 21, 2023 ·

MALIBU—The city of Malibu announced on their website that potential PSPS (Public Safety Power Shutoffs) power outages in multiple neighborhoods in east & west Malibu from Monday, November 20 thru Tuesday, November 21 as a result of hazardous windy fire conditions in order to prevent its equipment from starting a wildfire.

The PSPS warning is for multiple circuits (Galahad, Nicholas & Serra circuits), but they can alter with changing wind patterns. Southern California Edison is notifying customers directly. To obtain more details look up PSPS power outage status at http://www.SCE.com/PSPS. Look up your circuit and map at www.MalibuCity.org/PSPS.

Individuals are being informed to be prepared for potential power outages, fire, evacuations, hazardous road conditions due to branches in the road and malfunctioning traffic signals. Under CA law, come to a complete stop at any malfunctioning traffic signal.
Monitor local news using AM/FM car, solar, handcrank and battery powered radios, which work when the power is out.

All flammable furniture and materials should be moved from the house and people are asked to secure furniture. Check on elderly or disabled neighbors. Seniors, people who rely on wheelchairs, medical devices, or are otherwise not mobile, and owners of horses and large animals should consider leaving the area early. Open garaged doors or electric gates beforehand in case the power goes out.

Malibu has an agreement with SCE to station an SCE Community Resource Crew Vehicle at Malibu Bluffs Park (PCH and Malibu Canyon Road) 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday and Tuesday to allow people to charge devices and get information.
