SAFETY INFORMATION (ALWAYS WORTH REPEATING):
• If the power goes out, we want customers to stay safe and comfortable. Get ready for the storm by visiting Eversource.com for helpful storm preparedness information.
• All community first responders are reminded to contact Eversource immediately in the event of a downed wire. Maintain a distance of at least 10 feet until Eversource arrives to make the area safe.
• Falling branches and uprooted trees can become tangled with electrical wires and become energized. Please stay clear and report any fallen trees or wires immediately.
• Natural gas customers should be aware that some natural gas heating systems may be impacted in the event of a power interruption. All customers should be prepared to stay warm and safe, in case you lose your heating source.
• As always, if you smell a gas odor in your home or business, leave immediately. From a safe place, call Eversource to report the leak at our 24/7 emergency number, 877-944-5325, or call 911. Please remain outside until Eversource can check the source of the odor.
• Gas customers located in areas prone to coastal flooding are reminded that flooding can cause damage to your furnace or other natural gas appliances. If floodwaters reach gas-operated appliances, customers should call Eversource at 877-944-5325 to have their service shut off for safety considerations. If flooding is severe, natural gas appliances should not be used until inspected by a licensed plumber or contractor. Once it is determined that your appliances are safe to operate, please call Eversource at 877-944-5325 to turn on the gas at the meter and/or relight your appliances.
• Some natural gas heating systems may be impacted in the event of a power interruption. Do not use your gas stove as a heating source – only use approved heating sources.
Gas and Electric:
• In the event of a power outage, if you use a generator, always operate it outdoors, as far from the house as possible. Keep it away from doors, windows and air vents to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning.
• The symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are similar to the flu and may include headaches, weakness, confusion, chest tightness, skin redness, dizziness, nausea, sleepiness, fluttering of the heart or loss of muscle control. If you suspect carbon monoxide is present in your home, go outside immediately and breathe deeply; then call 911.
• Information access is a priority, and important updates are readily available:
o Call us at 800-286-2000 to report an electric outage, or go online at www.eversource.com. For gas leaks, call 877-944-5325.
o Follow us on Twitter (@EversourceCT) and Facebook (facebook.com/EversourceCT).
o Customers are encouraged to sign up to receive storm outage updates on the channel of their choice (text, email, phone call) at www.eversource.com.

As part of January National Radon Awareness Month, the Chatham Health District has acquired 100 radon test kits from the Connecticut State Health Department. One test kit is available per residence. The test consists of placing a small charcoal canister in the lowest occupied level of the home for 48 hours. Twelve hours before the test and during the entire test period all doors and windows must be kept closed except for normal egress in and out of the home. Heating and central air systems may be used, but room air conditioners, attic fans, fireplaces or wood stoves may not be used or readings will not be accurate. Once the test is complete, you will need to mail the kit in for testing at no charge to you. The results will be sent to you and will be mapped by this department to determine high levels of radon within our district. The results will not be public information.
These test kits are in high demand and are very limited. Please ONLY take a test kit if you are committed to following the directions and mailing it out. If you are interested in obtaining a free radon kit, please call the Chatham Health District at 860-365-0884.
