DUKE ENERGY UPDATE:
Duke Energy is currently re-energizing the island’s electrical grid in phases. As each grid comes back online, houses and businesses with monitored fire alarms systems will begin functioning again with depleted backup batteries causing alarm notifications to be sent to the monitoring services. There will likely be many alarms over a long period of time requiring a Public Safety response. There is no cause for alarm and no need to notify Public Safety directly should you be notified of an alarm by your service. Public Safety will be responding to each notification as dispatched regardless of suspected cause.
