CON ED CREWS AREN'T WORKING 24 HOURS...CON ED SHOULD CALL IN RETIREES
Release Date: November 03, 2012

Just learned that the Con Ed crew assigned to Greenburgh won’t be working 24 hours. We have an emergency – over 8,000 homes without power. Very little progress has been made since the hurricane in restoring power to those who have experienced outages. Con Ed should assign different crews to work AM and PM hours—until restoration of power is complete.
 
I am communicating my thoughts to every elected official who represents the town, state officials, Con Ed with the following requests/suggestions:
 
1) Con Ed should assign crews to areas without power 24 hours a day. No down time until all power is restored.
2) Con Ed should call in their retirees—ask their qualified retirees to help with power restoration.
3) Con Ed should authorized properly certified electricians to help out with this emergency. They should hire private companies (not just out of state contractors) who ALREADY DO STATE WORK to help out—until power is restored.
 
It is ridiculous that the restoration of power is taking so long. The NYS Public Service Commission should also investigate the way this crisis has been handled. I continue to receive calls from people who have major health problems –who won’t leave their homes. How many people will develop life threatening illnesses as a result of these delays?
