CON EDISON DISTRIBUTES DRY ICE TO RESIDENTS IN SUNSET PARK, BROOKLYN
NEW YORK — Con Edison has started to distribute dry ice to customers affected by power interruptions while company crews work to restore electrical power to residents from 5th Avenue to 8th Avenue between 59th and 61st Streets in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
The bags of dry ice are being distributed at 60th Street and 6th Avenue. A Con Edison customer outreach van is at this location.
Instructions for residents on the safe handling and disposal of the dry ice are printed on the paper bags containing the ice. Dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide and should be used only in well-ventilated areas. Keep children and pets safely away.
Con Edison continues to urge all customers in Sunset Park to discontinue their use of non-essential electrical appliances and equipment until problems on electrical cables can be resolved.
Con Edison urges customers to report power interruptions or service problems online at www.conEd.com, or on their cell phones and PDAs. Customers can also call 1-800-75-CONED.
