Southern California Edison (SCE) will be conducting equipment and pole inspections in some Chino Hills neighborhoods over the next few weeks using drones and/or helicopters as part of their wildfire prevention and mitigation program.    

  • Inspectors us the drones and/or helicopters to inspect equipment from difficult angles, and get a top-down angle and a 360-degree view. 
  • The focus of these operations is to keep our community safe by inspecting electrical equipment on poles and towers and to identify any damage or potential hazard that may need immediate repair.

The amount of time it takes to conduct inspections varies depending on how much equipment is on each pole or tower but should take approximately 30 to 60 minutes for each location.  The neighborhoods expected to experience the aerial inspections are Fairfield Ranch, and the greater Butterfield Ranch area.
