FYI – Flexible hose for natural gas and propane alert

FYI – Flexible hose for natural gas and propane alert

 

Lt. Governor Jim Cawley and State Fire Commissioner Ed Mann recently  announced an effort to raise awareness regarding a safety upgrade for  grounding existing (and new) yellow corrugated stainless steel tubing used  to supply natural gas or propane to appliances in homes and offices. There  has been an upgrade to the grounding installation requirements due to the  risk of fires resulting from pinhole leaks in the tubing that can occur as a  result of a lightning strike.

 

As a state prone to lightning strikes, TEMA and PSATS encourages its member  townships to share this information with their residents as a means to  further provide for the protection of the health, welfare, and safety of  your residents.

 

Property owners who have yellow CSST installed in their homes after 1989  should contact a licensed electrical contractor to determine proper bonding  of the system. As always, consumers should consider qualifications of the  contractor before selecting them to perform a safety check.

 

Here is a link to a video describing the proper bonding and grounding  requirements:   www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SvS40oYMiE.  Here is a link to the technical bulletin outlining the new grounding  requirements: www.csstsafety.com/Images/CSST-Direct-Bonding-Tech-Bulletin.pdf.

 

Although yellow CSST installations may have met code requirements at the  time of installation, safety building codes have changed and it is now  recommended that these systems be promptly checked and updated to the new  installation standards.

“Free” Medical Alert Scam

“Free” Medical Alert Scam

 

The Pennsylvania SMP is hearing reports about a new medical alert scam targeting seniors nationwide. The unsolicited scam calls are pre-recorded messages stating that the senior qualifies for a free medical alert system or that someone has already paid for it. The message instructs seniors to press a number on their keypad to connect with a live person, or to press a different number to disconnect the call or be removed from their list.

 

If you receive a call like this, do not press any buttons, just hang up the phone. These calls are not from a legitimate company; they are attempts to scam seniors by enticing them with a free device and then asking for personal information.

 

Remember these red flags:

 

* Unsolicited calls: Be wary of calls that you did not ask to receive. Hang up the phone.

 

* Asking for personal information: Never give out personal, identifying information to callers, including your checking account, Social Security, or Medicare number.

 

* Offers involving anything “free”: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Medical alert systems are not free, and Medicare does not pay for them.

 

If you believe you may have been the victim of this scam, would like to report another health care scam, or see charges on your Medicare Summary Notice that you don’t recognize, call the SMP at CARIE. We’re here to help. A real person will answer your call. No buttons to push or menus to follow.
