CON EDISON DISTRIBUTES DRY ICE IN WESTCHESTER
NEW YORK – As hundreds of Con Edison crews restore electrical power to residents affected by Hurricane Irene, the company is distributing dry ice to customers in Westchester County at two locations until 7 p.m. or until supplies run out:
Muriel H. Morabito Community Center
Town Park, 205 Business Park Drive; a customer outreach van also will be at this location.
Instructions for safe handling and disposal are printed on the paper bag containing the ice. Dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide and should be used only in well-ventilated areas. Keep children and pets safely away.
In Rye: 1051 Boston Post Rd., Con Edison employees will assist customers, but not supply dry ice, from an outreach van until 7 p.m.
