Con Edison Distributes Dry Ice in the Bronx for Customers Affected by the Heat
Con Edison is distributing dry ice today at the corner of E. 179th St. and Vyse Ave. in the Bronx to customers who have lost power due to the intense heat.
Dry ice will be available until 9 p.m. or supplies run out.
Instructions for safe handling and disposal of dry ice are printed on the bag containing the ice. Dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide and should be used only in well-ventilated areas. A reminder: children and pets should be kept safely away from dry ice.
The company is following safety guidelines issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the state, the city and the county for COVID-19, and asks customers to practice social distancing while waiting with others and speaking with Con Edison representatives. That will help ensure that everyone remains safe during the health crisis.
