The US National Weather Service Pendleton Oregon expects high winds and possible storms this week. Please stay safe and ensure your home is protected against possible hazards.
As a reminder, as a last-resort safety precaution, UEC may need to de-energize power lines in extreme weather events in an effort to prevent a fast-moving, hard to fight wildfire. This is called a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS). UEC monitors local fire danger conditions across our diverse service territory and takes into consideration a combination of weather and environmental factors. For more information about a Public Safety Power Shutoff event, please visit our PSPS page.
