2020 Sierra National Forest Creek Fire
December 2, 2020 - SAN FRANCISCO - The Wildfire Safety Advisory Board (WSAB) will host a remote access only meeting as follows:
WHEN: Wednesday, December 9, 2020, 1– 4 p.m.
WHERE: Online via webcast; also available via conference line. Participation information is below.
Members of the public are encouraged to attend the meeting and provide their input. The Wildfire Safety Advisory Board will hear presentations from representatives of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) Wildfire Safety Division, the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES), and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) on the 2020 wildfire season. The Board will also discuss and vote on the Guidance Advisory Opinion for the Publicly Owned Electric Utilities and Electrical Cooperatives.
Assembly Bill 1054, signed into law in July 2019, created the California Wildfire Safety Advisory Board, a board of independent expert advisors, to advise a new Wildfire Safety Division within the CPUC on wildfire safety measures, including plans written by utilities, so the CPUC can more effectively regulate the safety of investor-owned utilities. Additionally, the Board must review the Wildfire Mitigation Plans submitted by Publicly Owned Electric Utilities and Electrical Cooperatives and provide comments and an Advisory Opinion. The Wildfire Safety Advisory Board also serves as an additional forum for the public to provide input on the important topic of wildfire safety.
