    We are among quite a few people never notified about outage before it happened. I am on oxygen. My machine shut off. I had 1 hr. left on my tank. I had to go to hospital to be on their oxygen until my supplier could get me some. This was after closing hours for supplier. I then called my supplier and had to wait approx. 1 hour for some full tanks. This was a very scary happening for me. You should have had notice in local paper. If I had know about this planned outage, I could have gotten extra tanks. This was a very stupid screwup. Should have been handled thru newspaper announcement. Sure left me with a bad taste in my mouth for you. Disgusted.

    Will this same thing happen when you install new meters? Any reimbursement?????????
