PSPS Event Information

A public safety power shutoff, or PSPS, is when a company like Idaho Power proactively turns off power to an area where wildfire risk is high due to extreme weather conditions. The outage is an effort to keep our customers, communities, employees, and equipment safe. Customers outside impacted PSPS areas may also experience outages due to high winds and increased protection settings on our lines that help prevent wildfire ignitions when a fault is detected. In either case, outages may last longer than normal since we’ll need to inspect the lines to make sure we can re-energize them safely.

A PSPS is a last resort to prevent wildfires. Our goal is to minimize the risk of fire while balancing the impact outages have on our customers and communities.

There are no active PSPS events at this time.  

During an event, we will update impacted customers by a phone call, text, or email.

  • Active PSPS areas will be displayed in orange on the map below, where you can also search for a specific address to see if it falls inside an active area.
  • Inactive areas on the map — displayed in purple when you zoom or search for an address — are not involved in an active event but are areas where Idaho Power has determined that PSPS events are more likely due to increased fire risk. However, all customers should be prepared.
