California’s traditional idea of a fire “season” has evolved into a year-long battle against stronger, faster wildfires.  About a quarter of Southern California Edison’s service territory is categorized as a high fire risk area.  In order to keep customers, employees, and the public safe, Edison has made it a priority to invest in improvements to help prevent wildfires and to act quickly when they occur.


SCE Principal Manager of Government Relations Chris Abel will provide an overview of what SCE is doing to make Southern California more resilient in the face of this threat.
