PG&E High Definition Cameras And Weather Stations 

PG&E has installed a new high definition camera in Calaveras County, and plans to have multiple cameras and weather stations across both Amador and Calaveras counties in the coming months. Company spokesperson Brandi Merlo says it is part of the new community wildfire safety program. The camera in the West Point area is one of 100 planned for this year, statewide. Merlo says, “They allow firefighters, first responders, and PG&E to confirm and monitor potential wildfires. This can increase response time and lessen the destruction of the fire.” The cameras are part of the “alertwildfire” camera network. Calaveras is one of the early areas to receive a camera, and there is an eventual goal of having 600 installed in the state by the year 2022. PG&E is also planning to have 600 weather stations in place by the end of this year. They will help identify high risk fire weather conditions.
