Dominion East Ohio Initiates Outbound Calls in Response to Monday Morning Fires in Fairport Harbor

Jan 24, 2011, 15:27 ET from Dominion East Ohio

CLEVELAND, Jan. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Following a series of morning fires in the Village of Fairport Harbor, Dominion East Ohio has initiated outbound calls to the 1,500 affected customers to gain access to individual properties and ensure each premise is safe.

In addition to calling all affected households, the company has pulled in additional resources to canvass each neighborhood, so that we can begin the process of inspecting customer homes and restoring natural gas service. Once inside the home, Dominion East Ohio crews will turn off the gas, conduct an inspection, check all appliances and the meter and restore service. If service cannot be restored on Monday, the company is assisting those customers with temporary lodging.

Dominion will make all reasonable attempts to gain access to each home; however, if the company cannot gain access to a residence, the gas will be disconnected at the curb and a notice on the door will advise the homeowner to contact the gas company when they return home at 1-800-362-7557.
