O&R: SOME HEATING METHODS CREATE CARBON MONOXIDE RISK
PEARL RIVER, NY Feb. 19, 2015 --- As frigid wind chills freeze the
region, O&R reminds its customers that carbon monoxide poisoning can
result from using malfunctioning, improperly vented or makeshift heating
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a poisonous gas that is invisible, odorless and
tasteless. It is formed by the incomplete burning of fuels such as
heating oil, wood, gasoline, natural gas, propane and charcoal.
When heating units or motors are not working properly, or if exhaust
fumes and chimneys are not properly vented outdoors, carbon monoxide can
accumulate in the home, building or garage. The dangers of CO can be
reduced by the installation of approved CO detectors, which can provide
early warning of accumulated CO before it reaches as dangerous level.
Breathing even small amounts of carbon monoxide can result in headaches,
dizziness and nausea. Prolonged exposure can result in more severe
illness, or even death. If you experience any of these symptoms,
immediately open the windows in your home and seek medical attention.
The signs of a CO problem: To do your part to reduce carbon
If you smell gas, call O&R’s 24/7 gas emergency hotline at
1-800-533-5325, 911 or your local gas provider.
Whether your community has been hit with a small but violent microburst
or your town is part of a widespread outage, we have a process in place
to restore your power safely. Watch our latest storm restoration video
to see how we do it.

Recently the Norwood Police Department has joined with a
company called Nixle to
provide text alerts to cell phones and emails to
computers or PDA's, to add another way of alerting our residents with
information. The Norwood Police has had reverse 911 for a couple
of years, but didn't have the ability to make cellular text alerts or
mass email warnings. Now residents can be at work or on vacation
and still get news or information concerning Norwood. In order to
receive this new service, the resident goes to
and logs onto the service. This service doesn't cost Norwood
anything and the resident's information remains private and won't be
used for anything other than Norwood alerts. Should there be any
questions, please call Chief Jeffrey Krapels office at 201-784-2964.
