Con Edison reminds customers that if they see downed electrical wires, do not go near them. Treat all downed wires as if they are live. Never attempt to move them or touch them with any object. Be mindful that downed wires can be hidden from view by snow, tree limbs, leaves or water.
Customers can report downed power lines, outages and check service restoration status online by computer, cell phone, or PDAs at www.conEd.com. They may also call 1-800-75CONED. When reporting an outage, have your Con Edison account number available, if possible, and report whether your neighbors have also lost power.
