About Energy Safety

On July 1, 2021 the Wildfire Safety Division transitioned to become the Office of Energy Infrastructure Safety under the California Natural Resources Agency.
The primary purpose of Energy Safety is to ensure electrical utilities are taking effective actions to reduce utility-related wildfire risk. The office operates under several guiding principles, one of which is delivering near-term results while promoting a long-term utility wildfire vision. To achieve our mission, measures are being implemented to ensure an integrated, utility-related wildfire mitigation approach; amalgamate local perspectives into utility approaches to reflect community differences; support decision making with data and analytics; and, when possible, exercise innovative problem solving for developing new utility wildfire solutions. We receive and incorporate guidance from the Wildfire Safety Advisory Board and we are comprised of three Divisions and one Directorate.
