What's the difference between Flex Alerts and Public Safety Power Shutoffs?

So, can I help prevent a
Public Safety Power Shutoff?

You can’t...PSPS are planned
outages to help prevent wildfires so we have no control over preventing them.

Okay, so how about Flex Alerts?
Can they prevent outages.

They sure can! Flex Alerts notify us of preventable outages. They’re triggered during heat waves when everyone is using energy to stay cool. But if we reduce our energy use from 4-9PM, together, we can help prevent outages from occurring.
