Whether you're relaxing at home, driving to work or enjoying the great outdoors, your safety is our top priority. To keep you safe in and around our service area, we’ve put together helpful tips and resources. We've also included resources on what SMUD does to prepare for storms and wildfires.
In case of emergency: call 911
for sparking or downed lines and outages (only after calling 911 first)
for trees in power lines
for pipeline damage (particularly when digging)
for kites in lines or other safety concerns
Preparing an emergency kit
At SMUD, we’re working hard 24/7 to power our community with safe and reliable power, but we know the unexpected can happen, and that includes power outages. An emergency kit is a great way to be ready for any unexpected event. By putting safety essentials together in one place, you’ll always be prepared.
Dry-Cleaner Site Restoration Project
The commercial laundry facility Community Linen operated at 1824 and 1826 61st Street in Sacramento, from 1957 to 1981. Chemicals used to operate its business have been found in soil and groundwater at and near the property. SMUD purchased the property in 1981 but only recently discovered the contamination. We’re working voluntarily, under regulatory oversight, to address environmental impacts that we did not contribute to or cause. Remediation activities on the former Community Linen site will begin in 2021.Go to project page
