Update on Power Outages 5-17-18 AM

NYSEG Service Area:   There are NYSEG crews working right now on the circuit that feeds the areas in Bedford without power (about 830 customers out of power now).   Should be completed in the next few hours – and if so, power should be back up this afternoon for the great bulk.  There’ll be some individual issues that they’ll focus on.

PLEASE BE SAFE – EXERCISE CAUTION

Carbon Monoxide
Please do not use natural-gas powered kitchen ovens or ranges to heat your home. Using these cooking appliances for heating creates a significant risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas that is invisible, odorless and tasteless. It is formed by the incomplete burning of fuels such as heating oil, wood, gasoline, natural gas, propane and charcoal. Also, don’t use charcoal grills indoors for heating or cooking because of the CO risk that also creates. The same warning applies to fireplaces that are not properly ventilated.

Please feel free to e-mail me at supervisor@bedfordny.gov or call me at 666-6530.  Thanks for your continued patience.
