CON EDISON PREPARES FOR WINTER STORM
NEW YORK -- Con Edison is closely monitoring the approaching winter storm that is expected to bring several inches of snow, followed by sleet and rain. Con Edison is ready to mobilize extra crews throughout New York City and Westchester County the next several days to respond to any power outages.
In addition, the company will be in close contact with the New York City Office of Emergency Management and the Westchester County Department of Emergency Services to coordinate storm-response activities if needed.
The company urges customers to report power interruptions or service problems online at www.conEd.com, or by calling Con Edison’s toll-free customer service number
1-800-75-CON ED (1-800-752-6633). When reporting an outage, customers should have their Con Edison account number available, if possible, and report whether their neighbors also have lost power.
Customers can also obtain restoration time and view outage maps online at http://www.coned.com/sm/outageinfo.asp.
