CON EDISON SETS UP CUSTOMER SERVICE POSTS
IN FLOOD-RAVAGED AREAS
NEW YORK – Con Edison has set up command posts at seven locations in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island to help customers whose electrical equipment was damaged by Hurricane Sandy flooding.
The locations are:
Gerritsen Avenue and Lois Street in Gerritsen Beach
Highland Avenue and Lyme Avenue in Seagate
Shore Boulevard and Mackenzie Street in Manhattan Beach
Voorhies Avenue and Ocean Avenue in Brighton Beach
Cross Bay Boulevard and East 9th Road in Broad Channel
Cross Bay Boulevard and 165th Avenue in Old Howard Beach
Father Capodanno Boulevard and Hunter Avenue
Con Edison inspectors are going door to door to homes in flood-damaged areas to determine whether customer equipment was damaged. If the company determines that a customer's equipment was not damaged, their service will be restored when the company re-energizes the affected area.
If a customer's equipment has water damage, the customer will need to have a private licensed electrician or plumber certify that the equipment can be safely energized.

In addition, Con Edison has personnel at the Westchester County Center at 198 Central Ave. in White Plains to answer customer questions about the restoration of service following Hurricane Sandy and this week's Nor'easter.
