BERWYN, PA - Due to the widespread power outages in the T-E community, numerous generators are being used to fill the gap as PECO works around the clock to get power restored.
Our crews have responded to over 75 fire/EMS calls in the last couple of days. This has included multiple calls for carbon monoxide alarms activated in homes on Colket Ln., Churchill Dr., Old Lancaster Ave., School House Ln., Timber Ln., Hunters Ln. and Stephens Dr. in Tredyffrin Township. In every instance either a generator was found to be too close to the residence or an installation issue was suspected.

• Generators should be operated in well ventilated locations outdoors away from all doors, windows and vent openings.
