It was a rough week indeed for Scarsdale real estate. Flying trees battered our homes – though as far as I know, no roofs or facades blew off and we were spared the flooding that has devastated other parts of the metropolitan area. So take stock, clean up and be safe while you await Con Edison. Here are some safety tips on home generators and candles from the Scarsdale Fire Department:
The Scarsdale Fire Department would like to remind all residents to be extremely vigilant with their the use of candles and generators. Candles should not be left unattended for any reason, and must be extinguished before leaving the room and before sleeping. Candles should only be placed on sturdy non-combustible surfaces and combustible items like paper and cloth should not be placed near candles.
When using generators be very mindful that carbon monoxide is created when the generator is running. Generators must be placed outside the house and in a well ventilated area. In addition, residents are urged not to connect their generators to their main electrical panel themselves – this work should only be performed by a licensed electrician. Finally, when connecting appliances, lights, etc. to portable generators be sure to use UL listed extension cords of adequate size and capacity.
All Fire Department business phone lines are still out due to the storm. Emergencies should be reported to 911 or the Fire Department emergency number at 722-1217. Non-emergency storm-related issues should be reported to Scarsdale’s Emergency Operations Center at 722-1150 between the hours of 6am – 9pm. After hours non-emergency issues can be reported to the Scarsdale Police Department at 722-1200.
