PG&E recently donated $35,000 to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Task Force on Public Safety.

The task force was established in 2013 with an initial donation of $75,000 from PG&E to the Sheriff’s Advisory Foundation.

“With PG&E’s generous donation, we are able to be a leader when it comes to preparing for any emergency that may come our way,” Sheriff Ian Parkinson said.
