Hazardous ice buildup on power lines

Sunday, March 8, 2015   Carman firefighters responded to a  Hamburg Street residence where hazardous ice buildup posed a danger to both the residents and passing traffic. Responders established a perimeter around the scene and prepared a response in case the wires detached from the weight of the ice. National Grid was contacted and upon their arrival Carman Fire Department was released from the scene.

Carman Fire Department would like to remind homeowners, businesses, and property managers that ice buildup from roofs and around powerlines can cause severe damage. If you have the opportunity try to remove snow and ice from your roof safely. Information on how to proceed safely can be found on the web.
