Power Outage Alerts

A Power Outage Alert will be issued during extreme weather or wildfire conditions. These shutoffs are determined by your local energy company and will be communicated by the Hayward Fire Department and the City of Hayward.

Current Public Safety Power Shutoff: 

Date Issued: 10/8/19  Expected Duration: Unknown

Current update as of: 8:00 a.m. 10/10/19

Pacific Gas and Electric Co. shutoff power to 1,400 residences in the Hayward hills and 2,000 in Fairview Fire Protection District shortly before midnight Wednesday as part of the utility’s sweeping strategy of de-energizing transmission and distribution lines to avoid sparking fires during risky weather conditions.

In response, the City of Hayward has increased and pre-positioned firefighter, police and emergency-dispatch staffing levels, and opened a cooling and device-charging center at City Hall.  Some pre-positioned firefighters were dispatched to help fight a fire in the hills around Moraga in Contra Costa County.

Hayward and Fairview Fire Protection District residents are invited to call (510) 583-4949 and visit www.hayward-ca.gov/psps online for up-to-date information on the wind event and power outages.  Due to anticipated increased service demand, residents are urged to avoid calling 911 except in an emergency.
