*TARENTUM RESIDENTS PLEASE READ VERY IMPORTANT*
RECENTLY, SEVERAL RESIDENTS EXPERIENCED UNANNOUNCED SHUT-OFFS OF THEIR ELECTRIC SERVICE. THIS IS BECAUSE THE ELECTRIC METERS USED BY THE BOROUGH ARE EQUIPPED WITH AN AUTOMATIC SAFETY SHUT-OFF SWITCH WHICH IS DESIGNED TO SHUT-DOWN THE METER IF ANY POTENTIAL PROBLEM IS DETECTED. THE SMART METERS ARE DESIGNED TO DO THIS TO ENSURE YOUR SAFETY. IF THIS OCCURS, YOU SHOULD LOOK TO SEE IF YOUR METER HAS SHUT ITSELF OFF, THE DISPLAY WILL BE BLINKING "OPEN". THE BLINKING "OPEN" INDICATES THE METER HAS SHUT ITSELF OFF. YOU SHOULD THEN CALL THE BOROUGH AT 724-224-9688 AND REPORT YOUR METER HAS SHUT OFF. SOMEONE WILL INSPECT YOUR METER SHORTLY AND A LINEMAN WILL PROMPTLY BE DISPATCHED TO RETURN YOUR SERVICE.
OF COURSE, IF YOU FEEL THERE IS ANY EMERGENCY, YOU SHOULD CONTACT ALLEGHENY COUNTY 911 FOR POLICE, AMBULANCE OR FIRE DEPARTMENT RESPONSE.
ALSO, THE ABOVE BOROUGH NUMBER MAY BE USED IF YOU EXPERIENCE A WATER OUTAGE AND HAVE NOT ALREADY BEEN CONTACTED THROUGH THE BOROUGH'S ONE-CALL SYSTEM. IF YOU ARE NOT SIGNED UP FOR THE ONE CALL YOU CAN CLICK ON THE CODE RED EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION LINK AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE AND SIGN UP.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION IN THIS MATTER
