Orange & Rockland Reminders,
Outage Map and Claim Information
announced on August 8, 2020 that the company will reimburse customers for food and prescription medicine spoilage
if they lost power for 48 consecutive hours or longer during Tropical Storm Isaias, which slammed the region Tuesday. If
you lost power for more than 48 consecutive hours as a result of
the storm, please fill out a claims form at: https://www.oru.com/en/services-and-outages/claim-form to cover your costs for spoiled food, medication or
perishable commercial merchandise.
Requests for reimbursement must
be filed on or before September 8, 2020.
Customers can also obtain a reimbursement form
by calling O&R Customer Service at 1-877-434-4100 and they will send one to the customer.
For safety’s sake, don’t touch or approach
any downed wire. Assume the downed wire is energized and dangerous. Do not approach them, try to move them or touch them with
any object. Be mindful that downed wires can be hidden from view by tree limbs, leaves or standing water.
O&R personnel follow the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and practice social distancing with each other and members of the public
when responding to emergency calls. That’s an attempt to keep everyone safe from COVID-19. O&R also asks that members
of the public remain a safe social distance from O&R crews, work sites and trucks. If you must speak to the crews, please
maintain a social distance of at least six feet so that everyone’s health is protected.
If you experience a power outage, don’t assume that O&R automatically
knows about it. To be sure the outage is reported, please check its status at www.oru.com and report it yourself. The more information we have, the better O&R
can help you.
If you have a power outage, you can report it and check to see when your power will be back on through:
- At www.oru.com from any computer or web-based mobile device.
- O&R mobile app from your iPhone, iPad or Android device --- download via Apple Store or
- Text messaging by texting “OUT” to 69678 (myORU) or
- Call 1-877-434-4100
To help its customers prepare to weather a storm, O&R
offers more tips:
a distance of at least 50 feet from downed wires and anything they are in contact with including puddles of water
and fences. Supervise your children so that they are not in the vicinity and keep pets on a leash or otherwise secure.
- If a fallen wire is draped over a car, do not approach the car or make rescue
attempts. Remain a safe distance away and try to keep the occupant of the vehicle calm. If possible, emergency personnel
should handle the situation.
- Pole-top transformers
--- those small grey-colored metal drums attached to the wires at the tops of most utility poles --- also should be avoided
when they have been knocked to the ground.
- Portable generators
pose a serious hazard if used improperly. They should be used and installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
A wrong connection could feed electricity back through the lines and endanger our repair crews. Never plug a generator
into a wall unit, use it indoors or set it up outdoors near open home windows or air-handling vents.
