With the recent storm activity, we wanted to remind everyone of some emergency information.


DOWNED POWER LINES & POWER OUTAGE INFORMATION

If at any time you see downed power lines on fire or arching or suspect an unsafe electric condition; please avoid 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.

DEBRIS OR TREES BLOCKING THE ROADWAY

If you see any remaining trees or debris impeding roadways, please contact Malvern Borough at 610-644-2602, Willistown Township at 610-647-5300, and East Goshen Township at 610-692-7171

FLOOD SAFETY

If you can't see the road in front of you due to flooding conditions, "Turn around, don't drown!" You need to seek high ground and wait to drive your car, or you will risk getting trapped in swift water. It only takes 6 inches of swift moving water to knock you off your feet. 12 inches of moving water can sweep your vehicle off the road. The impact of floodwaters is often underestimated by motorists and pedestrians.

GENERAL POST STORM SAFETY TIPS

• Do not pass barricades, traffic cones, flares, or caution tape. Seek an alternative route of travel.
• 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!
