Berkeley, California (Wednesday, October 09, 2019) - To help officers and firefighters respond to the anticipated PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff and extreme fire danger in the hills, we need you to take steps to make our streets passable for first responders.  

Here are few things you can do to help with public safety:

  1. Do NOT park in the following areas:
    1. at red curbs
    2. posted tow-away zones
    3. posted no parking areas
    4. within 15’ of fire hydrants
    5. within 15’ fire station driveways
    6. and do NOT double-park

  1. If you see that signals are out, please treat all intersections as ALL-Way STOPS.


To report any dangerous conditions (not an emergency), you can contact the 311 Customer Service line at 510-981-2489

If you have an emergency, you should dial 911.
