Exercising caution around downed utility wires

While most utility repairs of the damage caused by Tuesday’s powerful thunderstorms are nearing completion in Greenwich, we are forwarding this message from the state Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection regarding safety around downed power lines.

Eversource field crews have witnessed people moving, driving over and walking over downed power lines. This is a potentially dangerous and deadly situation should these lines be live. Eversource reminds customers to be mindful of downed wires when clearing brush and storm debris. 

  •  Always consider them live and dangerous, even if they show no signs of being energized. 
  • Stay far away and avoid anything that may be in contact with them. 
  • Keep children and pets safely indoors. 

 Call Eversource at 800-286-2000 to report an electric outage, or visit the Eversource website


For gas leaks, call Eversource at 877-944-5325. 

For more information, contact Barbara Heins, Executive Assistant to the First Selectman.
