Electrical Current Can Travel Through Water
Electrocution is the #2 flood killer after drowning. Report downed power lines to the Freeport Electric Department at 516-378-0146.
Under Freeport Electric power restoration plan, priorities are given to wires down and people in the area, no power, half power, flickering lights and finally street light issues. Please note that if the power outage is caused by damage between the line to the home and the service installation, the costumer must call a licensed electrician to repair the damage before the line crew can restore the power.
