PG&E Community Pipeline Safety Initiative: Improving Emergency Access for First Responders Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is working with customers and the City of Watsonville to help ensure first responders have immediate access to natural gas transmission pipelines in case of an emergency. This important safety work involves reviewing structures, trees, and brush located  near the gas pipeline that could block emergency access for first responders or damage the pipeline. For any tree or structure that needs to be replaced for safety reasons, PG&E will work with the property owner to develop a plan that protects public safety while preserving the character and natural beauty of the area.

PG&E will be meeting with local residents and organizations so that the community is well informed before any work takes place. If you have any questions or would like more information about the planned safety work in Watsonville, please contact PG&E’s local customer outreach specialist Jimmy Hernandez at 1-408-234-6032 or Additional information on the Community Pipeline Safety Initiative, as well as other PG&E gas safety efforts, can also be found at .
