Public Safety Power Shutoffs

  • The utility companies may shut off power to some or all of Santa Barbara County to help prevent wildfires during high wind and heat events. These power shutoffs could occur with short notice and could last for several days. Learn more at Prepare for Power Down. Get tips on preparing for PSPS from OEM and the Red Cross.
