Select counties in California affected by PSPS

In line with the extreme heatwave that’s currently sweeping across California, electric utilities have decided to implement Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS). These temporary shutoffs are put in place to minimize the risk of fires caused by electric infrastructure during extreme weather. 

In a blog post, T-Mobile revealed that some California utilities have advised the company that they will be implementing PSPS starting September 9th. The areas that will be affected by these include Kern County, Los Angeles County, Orange County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County, and Ventura County. 

T-Mobile has its network of generators and backup towers in place to help make sure that customers continue getting service during a Public Safety Power Shutoff. And because of this, customers may not notice any change in their service. But despite this, a power outage may still temporarily impact your service. 

The Un-carrier is keeping a close eye on the situation together with California power providers. They have also released some tips to help out:
