Fallen line or other hazardous condition reporting:
If you see a downed power line or other potentially hazardous condition involving electrical equipment, stay at least 30 feet away from the wires and anything they are in contact with. 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
