Business Owners Asked to Check Property Carefully

Do you own a business or public property in the St. John's area? If so, Inspections Services encourages you to check your property carefully for damages:

• ensure that light standards (poles) have not been damaged
• check that your signs are firmly attached to poles or to your business
• inspect your building for signs of damage, especially to your exterior cladding, that may let go and become a public hazard
• check the electrical connections to your facility: report any downed or low-hanging wires to NL Power immediately

Customers who notice loose or moving parts on a business are encouraged to inform the staff immediately. Be aware of your surroundings as you travel through parking lots, especially as high winds continue to be an issue following the storm.
