Atlantic City Electric Comes to the Rescue for Downed Power Line Block Emergency Room Access to Northwest Community Hospital, Arlington Heights

Arlington Heights police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 2:13 PM Friday to a report of a power line sagging over the roadway at Central Road and Dwyer Avenue Arlington Heights, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics arrived on the scene and discovered a power line sagging across Central Road just west of Dwyer Avenue.

The sagging power forced the closure of access to the Northwest Community Hospital Emergency Room from Central Road west of the hospital.

Exelon brothers of ComEd from Atlantic City Electric in Atlantic City, New Jersey responded to the scene to repair the line while the ComEd area was in storm recovery mode.

Atlantic City Electric brought a crew with a brand new $350,000 truck and repaired the power line within a few minutes.
