The Point Lookout Chamber spoke with Chas Thompson who is the commissioner of the Point Lookout-Lido Fire Department on Thursday November 8, 2012. He is urging residents to return to Point Lookout at their earliest convenience for home inspections in order to restore power. He also urged residents to attend daily briefings at the Point Lookout Firehouse each day at noon. On Thursday, there were 60 volunteers at the firehouse that were available to accompany homeowners to residences to conduct the inspections.
All residences and buildings in the Point Lookout and Lido Beach communities are required to have an electrical inspection completed before power will be resotered by LIPA. You may hire your own licensed electrician or take advantage of a partnership Nassau County has with a private contractor, Empire Electrical, free of charge.
Representatives will be visiting all locations door-to-door to conduct Post-Hurricane Sandy Electrical Surveys in preparation. To take advantage of the no-cost inspections, property owners must only sign a company liability waiver. You may download and print copies of the Survey and Liability waiver here:
