California Wildfire Safety Advisory Board
Assembly Bill 1054, signed into law in July 2019, created the California Wildfire Safety Advisory Board (WSAB or the Board), a board of independent experts. The Board advises the Office of Energy Infrastructure Safety on electrical corporations’ Wildfire Mitigation Plans (WMP), requirements for these plans, and other wildfire safety matters. Additionally, the Board reviews the WMPs submitted by Publicly-Owned Electric Utilities and Electrical Cooperatives (together, POUs) and provides comments and Advisory Opinions. The Board also serves as an additional forum for the public to provide input on the important topic of wildfire safety.
The Board meets at least quarterly throughout the state.
All inquiries may be submitted to email@example.com.
