CI TY MANAGER ISSUES DECLARATION OF EMERGENCY AFTER IMPACTS OF PG&E POWER OUTAGE
VALLEJO, CA - On October 27, City Manager Greg Nyhoff signed a Declaration of Emergency for the City of Vallejo, in response to extreme events, including the recent power outages, fires, and a potential water shortage.

By declaring a state of emergency, the City is able to access State assets that may be needed to support the city through the duration of the power outage. The declaration will be considered for ratification at the next City Council Regular Meeting.

Due to the Red Flag warning and wind event, Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) launched their Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS), affecting numerous households within Vallejo city limits.

The City has issued a mandatory water conservation notice, in response to the PSPS impacting the City's ability to pump raw water for treatment, limiting the City to what was pumped in reservoirs pre-event.

Major brush fires were ignited in South Vallejo near Cal Maritime Academy, and Glen Cove east of the I-80 toll plaza, burning roughly 140 acres in South Vallejo. As of the Update 3, the fire is 90% contained.

The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) was activated at 10:00 a.m. and was deactivated at 4:00 p.m. However, increased staffing will continue through the night. City leaders will continue to monitor and evaluate, and will reactivate the EOC as the PSPS situation evolves.

Regular updates are available via press releases and posts on cityofvallejo.net/PSPS.
