Energy Safety to Hold Virtual Public Scoping Meeting on Community Vulnerability in Wildfire Mitigation Planning

SACRAMENTO – Energy Safety will hold a virtual public scoping meeting on May 10 at 9 a.m. to share ideas and discuss the inclusion of community vulnerability in wildfire mitigation planning. Socially vulnerable communities can be disproportionately impacted by wildfires and may therefore experience more challenging paths to recovery. Utility wildfire mitigation planning does not consistently quantify impacts that may be exacerbated by social vulnerability nor account for factors in a community’s ability to recover from a wildfire. Stakeholders, relevant state agencies, and California’s electrical corporations will participate.
