TORONTO, Dec. 26, 2013 /CNW/ - Toronto Hydro-Electric System Limited
(Toronto Hydro) kindly requests that media and pedestrians refrain from
engaging with crews while they work to restore power in neighborhoods.
If you have questions about the restoration process, please call
416-542-8000 to speak with a Customer Care representative. Crews are
working around the clock and in dangerous conditions. It is important
that they not be distracted from this work.
Public safety is always the utility's priority. Please keep a safe
distance from the work area (at least 15 feet) as tree limbs and debris
are falling as the crews work.
Our staff is focused on restoring power as quickly and safely as
possible. Crews will be working 24/7 until all power is restored.
Toronto Hydro has restored 254,000 customers. Approximately 46,000
customers are without power, which is down from the 300,000 impacted
during the height of the storm.
If you spot a downed wire, please stay back (at least 10 feet) and
report it to Toronto Hydro's operations centre at 416-542-8000. Please
be cautious of falling tree limbs as well. For more information about
household items to have on hand during a lengthy outage, please visit torontohydro.com/poweroutage
