Wildfires continue to adversely impact public health and safety, air quality, and the economy, undermining significant investments in emissions reduction. While progress has been made toward addressing wildfire risk, California must continue to take a comprehensive approach to improve wildfire prevention and mitigation, as well as address the real financial impacts that wildfires are having on communities and local publicly owned electric utilities.

NCPA’s 16 members are dedicated to providing safe, reliable, and affordable electric service to their communities and are diligently working to adapt their practices to the changing conditions of our climate. We are committed to partnering with federal, state, and local agencies to develop solutions addressing this important issue.
