Important Notice from O&R: Require Utility Workers at Your Home to Show I.D.
Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc. (O&R) today renewed its urgent call for customers to confirm — by requesting to see a Company identification card — whether the utility worker who comes to their door is a real O&R employee or a fake.
All O&R employees and contractors are required to carry color photo I.D. cards during their workday. If a person comes to your door claiming to be an O&R employee or contractor, ask to see the card.
If individuals representing themselves as O&R employees or contractors cannot produce a legitimate photo I.D. card, terminate further contact with them, lock your door and call the police.
O&R’s renewed advisory comes after a Rockland resident denied entry to her home to a man claiming he “worked for O&R” who had asked to enter her home to “read her gas pipe”, but could not produce an I.D. card.
