With ice accumulation in the forecast, ComEd has increased staffing levels and is closely monitoring the system to address outages as quickly and safely as possible.
In these severe conditions, ComEd is asking residents to report any outages or downed power lines immediately online, with the mobile app or via phone at 800.334.7661. Additionally, ComEd is asking that customers do not ever approach downed power lines or get too close to ComEd crews who may be working on live and hazardous electrical equipment.
In the event of a power outage, Village Hall and the Deerfield Police Department lobby (850 Waukegan Road) are available as warming shelters during business hours. After hours, the Police Department is available with limited services, but further warming shelter locations will be made available to those in need.
