PG&E still seeking contact information from area residents

Pacific Gas and Electric Company still needs contact information from 303 residents in Colusa County, 1,228 in Sutter County and 805 in Yuba County.

It is important customers keep their information updated so PG&E can share wildfire safety alerts, according to a PG&E press release.

The information needed from customers is: a current home phone number, mobile number, email and other key information so the company can contact them in advance should it become necessary to temporarily turn off power for safety this fire season.

PG&E’s goal, dependent on weather and other factors, is to send customer alerts through automated calls, texts and emails at 48 hours, again at 24 hours, and again just prior to shutting off power.

For customers who have not yet confirmed or updated their contact information, PG&E strongly encourages everyone to do so by visiting www.pge.com/mywildfirealerts or by calling the PG&E contact center at 1-866-743-6589.

In addition to notifying customers directly, PG&E also will provide outage updates and safety information through other channels such as social media, local news, radio and pge.com.

Rosser, who has owned Flying U-Rodeo for over 60 years, said he’s honored by the selection. 

“I am deeply honored and humbled to be selected with this class,” Rosser said. “What a great thing to be considered with all these great Americans who have served their country so well and still found time to be a part of the sport of rodeo.
