As always, we recommend that you prepare for the worst: keep flashlights and extra batteries at the ready, charge up your cell phones and laptops, and check in on elderly friends and neighbors. In the event of a power outage, call 1-800-75-CONED, or text “REG” to “OUTAGE” to make a report. You can also download the ConEd app on your iPhone or Android smartphone to easily report outages and check on estimated restoration times — you will need to have your account number handy to register with the app, so be sure to have it on hand to get set up. You can also use these services to report downed wires, which should also be reported to the police department, by calling the non emergency number at 914-941-4099. Remember to not touch downed power lines – they will likely still be electrified and pose a serious risk. The Ossining Police Department has requested a municipal liaison from Con Edison, to assist in the event of multiple power outages.

Thank you for your cooperation – stay safe!
