Severe Weather Keeps Berwyn Fire/EMS Busy, Post-Storm Safety Reminders

BERWYN, PA - Berwyn Fire Company fire/EMS crews have kept busy with the severe thunderstorm that rolled through the region today with over 20 calls handled in a just a few hours in the T-E community. The greater Glenhardie area and several streets on and off of Upper Weadley Rd. were hit especially hard with trees and power lines down.

The Tredyffrin and Easttown Township Public Works Departments are working to remove debris on roadways as quickly and safely as possible. However, until PECO can de-energize power lines that are entangled in trees they can't be moved. You can anticipate based on the volume of issues in the region that it will take several hours or more to get your power turned back on.

If you see caution tape, road barricades and/or flares blocking a roadway or area, DO NOT move or go past these items. Always keep yourself at least 10 feet from downed 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 TREE DOWN/DEBRIS IN THE ROADWAY

Tredyffrin Township - 610-408-3620
Easttown Township - 610-687-3000

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.

ARE YOU USING A PORTABLE 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.

Thank you to the Tredyffrin Township Police Department, Easttown Township Police Department, Tredyffrin and Easttown Public Works Departments, Paoli Fire Company, Radnor Fire Company and the Valley Forge Volunteer Fire Company for their assistance today.
