PG&E PSPS Impact on Gnoss Field

Please be aware that PG&E’s Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) program, which is designed to turn off electricity in the interest of public safety during extreme fire danger conditions, would impact Gnoss Field. The following would be out of service if PG&E were to initiate a PSPS: AWOS, PAPI lights, Runway and Taxiway lights, electric hangar doors, and Unicom communications. Additionally, the County Building and Pilots Lounge would have no power. If this happens, Gnoss Field staff would file a NOTAM with the FAA and send out a message to the airport email list. Please be aware that the PSPS events may last for several days, so please be prepared for any possible long term power outages.
