Beginning Tuesday, October 22, 2019, the City's Emergency Operations Center (EOC) activated for the third PG&E power shutoff event of the year. There would be three different PG&E public safety power shut off events in total throughout the 9 days of the City's EOC activation. In the middle of the EOC activation, the Kincade Fire began northeast of Geyserville at 9:24 p.m. on Wednesday, October 23. The fire was active for 2 weeks, burned just shy of 78,000 acres in Sonoma County, threatened the Santa Rosa City limits, and forced the evacuation of more than 70,000 residents in the City of Santa Rosa. Thanks to favorable changes in wind conditions and the massive efforts of first responders, and all staff from involved agencies, the Santa Rosa City limits were physically untouched by the fires. View the following slideshow to watch a snapshot of the City of Santa Rosa's overall staff response during the Kincade Fire and multiple Public Safety Power Shutoff events that occurred over the 9-day span in October 2019.
