Alameda County Alerts.

Original post made by Michael Austin, Pleasanton Meadows, on Jun 3, 2019

Alameda County government issued an alert May 29, 2019, stating that PG&E will shut off power in Pleasanton to all homes, businesses, and government offices when they (PG&E) have determined that there is threat of a wildfire.

I replied back, Pleasanton is not a wild fire area, it has never been determined, Pleasanton is in a wildfire area. I did not receive a response to my reply back.

The alert states, this is an advisory message from Alameda County, "as fire season approaches, your residence/schools/business has been identified as being in an area where weather conditions may create a need for PG&E to shut off power to prevent wildfires".

PG&E is just is the Trump of the power industry. It doesn't matter what they do...they are gonna get blamed and criticized anyway. They cut off power to the wine country during a fire and got attacked for that and they became gun shy and were late to pull the trigger and Paradise burned. If a stray bullet from a hunter hits a power line and sparks a fire or a transformer explosion then its PG&E's fault...THAT IS NOT RIGHT. So don't blame them for being overly cautious. This is going to be the new normal...so don't be surprised when you lose power because of a grass fire in the Dublin hills. They have warned you.
