Fallen line or other hazardous condition reporting:
If you see a downed power line or other potentially hazardous condition involving electrical equipment, stay away from the area
. The ground around downed or low hanging power lines as well as surrounding objects such as fences could be energized. To make a report, call Central Hudson immediately at 845-452-2700
, or only if calling from outside the 845 area code, 1-800-527-2714.
While you wait for a Central Hudson crew to arrive, continue to keep a safe distance and, if possible, keep others away. Our crews will arrive as quickly as possible. More tips for safety near power lines
