BERWYN, PA - This summer continues to keep Berwyn volunteers and career staff busy with severe thunderstorms, along with dealing with regular call volume. A total of 18 calls were handled from Wednesday, July 17th at 12:59 a.m. – Thursday, July 18th at 12:54 a.m. The majority of these calls occurred in the Tredyffrin-Easttown community, while there were 11 occurrences of overlapping calls.

As the latest storm rolled through the area around 8 p.m. Wednesday night, 9-1-1 calls started and didn't stop for several hours. The incidents included medical calls, house fires, downed power lines, motor vehicle collisions, and a carbon monoxide leak.

ARE YOU USING A GENERATOR TO POWER YOUR HOUSE?

• Generators should be operated in well ventilated locations outdoors away from all doors, windows and vent openings.
• Never use a generator in an attached garage, even with the door open.
• Place generators so that exhaust fumes can't enter the home through windows, doors or other openings in the building.
• Make sure to install carbon monoxide (CO) alarms in your home. Follow manufacturer's instructions for correct placement and mounting height.
• Turn off generators and let them cool down before refueling. Never refuel a generator while it is running.
• Store fuel for the generator in a container that is intended for the purpose and is correctly labeled as such. Store the containers outside of living areas.

FIRE & ELECTRICAL SAFETY TIPS

• Make sure you have working smoke detectors.
• Do not use candles to light your home if you lost power. Flashlights are a safer option.
• Call 9-1-1 if you smell any electrical burning smells in your home, which can sometimes occur after power surges during these types of storm events.
• Always assume power lines are live. This applies to power lines on utility poles as well as those entering your home or buildings. Even momentary contact can injure or kill.
• Always keep yourself, your equipment and anything you carry at least 10 feet from power lines. Even though you may notice a covering on a line, NEVER assume it is safe to touch. Stay Away, Stay Alive.

HOW TO REPORT A PECO GAS/ELECTRICAL EMERGENCY

• If at any time you smell natural gas, see downed power lines on fire or arching, or suspect an unsafe electric or natural gas condition; please leave the area immediately and then call 9-1-1 and PECO at 1-800-841-4141. DO NOT CALL 9-1-1 to tell them your power is out. This is not an emergency.
