Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS)

in Napa County

Archer Hotel Napa has power and was not impacted by the public safety shutoff affecting some areas of Napa County. We are assisting our guests with reservation confirmations and adjustments for their Napa Valley plans (e.g., wineries, tours, restaurants, spas).

Visit Napa Valley has provided the following helpful details about the PSPS in Napa County:

  • As a preventative measure, PG&E announced that weather patterns have prompted a Public Safety Power Shutoff in some areas of Napa County beginning Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2019.
  • There are no active wildfires or smoke affecting Napa County.
  • The downtown corridors of American Canyon, the city of Napa, and Yountville have full power. Calistoga is working to restore power today and St. Helena is still experiencing an outage.
  • While some businesses are impacted, many have backup generators and are still welcoming guests. A majority of power may begin to be restored as early as noon, Thursday, Oct. 10, 2019, but some areas may continue to be affected through the weekend.
  • Visitors planning a trip to Napa Valley are encouraged to confirm their reservations directly.

Background

  • In the late summer and early fall, California is at risk of wildfires — fires that are usually hundreds of miles away from tourism destinations.
  • In 2018, less than 1% of California was affected by wildfires.
  • Though media portrayals of destructive fires are often dramatic, in many cases, active wildfires play little to no part in disrupting a visitor’s experience.
  • Anyone sensitive to air quality impacts should consult real-time resources to determine if smoke levels in the state could impact their travel experience.
  • Our first concern is always the safety and well-being of our residents and visitors. California is a large state and wildfires in one location typically have no impact outside a limited area. 
  • Before turning off power, PG&E and other California-based utility companies send early-warning notifications (48 hours in advance, when possible) by phone, text alerts and emails to prepare residents and visitors of possible shutdowns. Websites and social media channels also share information and provide regular updates to local news and radio outlets.
