Storm Safety Guidelines: Downed Trees, Flooding, etc.

Seasonal Storms sometimes bring unexpected situations that may be hazardous.


NEVER touch or go near any wires that may have fallen or started sagging.  
NEVER walk in water where there are downed wires.
NEVER try to remove a fallen tree branch off a wire.

DO:   Contact Con Edison to report the issue at or call 1-800-75 CONED.
DO:  Call the Forestry Department at 914-422-1202, to report downed trees or tree limbs.

Strong sudden downpours may overwhelm the storm drain system temporarily.  These event should resolve themselves shortly after the rain has stopped.

Call the Water Bureau at (914) 422-1220 or (914) 422-1333 If you are concerned about flooding.
