[ARCHIVED] SCE May Implement Public Safety Power Shutoff in Western Malibu Thu, Oct 10, 9PM - Fri, Oct 11, 9AM


In anticipation of the upcoming Santa Ana wind event, Southern California Edison (SCE) has given the City a 48-hour notice that a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) may be implemented that could affect Western Malibu beginning Thursday, October 10, at 9:00 PM to Friday, October 11, at 9:00 AM.

Individuals who are medically dependent on electricity service should consider proactively staying in another area until conditions change. Residents are encouraged to check on family members and neighbors who may need assistance.

Residents should monitor local news, including KNX AM-1070 and KBUU 99.1-FM on the radio.

If a PSPS is implemented, and the hazardous conditions have passed, it could take 24 to 72 hours to re-energize circuits because SCE must first inspect all powerlines in the affected area to ensure they are safe to re-energize.

The City and the LA County Fire Department will continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates as they are received. The City will post information on the website (, social media, Nextdoor, and the Emergency & Traffic Hotline (310-456-9982).
