I have just completed a conference call with RG&E and representatives from State, County and other municipalities regarding the current Storm Preparedness. Due to the fact that the wind event is coming into our area later than initially planned, RG&E will be operating in a “make-safe” mode during the non-daylight hours. This means that any downed power lines will be made safe. Customers should call 1-800-743-1701 to report downed power lines or other hazardous situations. Restoration will begin in the daylight hours tomorrow (Monday) starting with transmission lines and substations that bring electricity to the local distribution system that serves the customers. Penfield Community Center, 1985 Baird Road, will be opened as a warming center as outages may occur. DPW crews will be on duty to assist RG&E to clear downed trees in roadways to ensure emergency vehicles can get through to all areas of the community. If you see a tree down in a roadway, please call DPW at 340-8710 to report.
Please be safe…
