Tuesday October 30th - 1:00 pm
Although the storm has passed, hazardous conditions still exist on many streets in the Boro. Residents are asked to use extreme caution if walking or venturing outside today as there are still many electric wires on the ground that may be live.
Our Police Fire, EMS and Office of Emergency Management met earlier this morning to assess the damage caused by the storm. Our Water system is fully operational and safe to drink. Our electric system is operating on one of the redundant power feeds from PSE&G. As of this morning several important electric feeder cables were restored but certain isolated electrical outages remain. Restoral of many of these isolated outages will require tree removal and will take some time to fully repair. We ask for your patience as our electric department crews work to restore power to these remaining areas.
If you are experiencing a power outage, we ask that you call the Park Ridge Utility department at 201-391-2113.
I would like to commend all of our emergency services and utility personnel and volunteers for their efforts during the storm. Our community has once again come together to help each other in this time of crisis. Please use caution and please be safe.
Park Ridge Mayor
