Dry ice can be used as a temporary cooling element in refrigerators without power.
Rochester residents can obtain free dry ice at a drive-thru distribution center from 8 a.m. through 8 p.m. Friday at the RG&E customer service office at 400 West Ave.
Power is expected to be restored to all customers by midnight on Friday.
"As we got about 48 hours into this incident and we knew our customers were out of power, we cranked our dry ice machine into motion, if you will, and we were able to get some dry ice here, for our customers to come get dry ice to help keep their food cold," said Dan Hucko, RG&E.
RG&E encourages people to bring gloves to prevent burns and frostbite that dry ice can cause when in contact with bare hands.
Dry ice will be available to those without power at 195 Mushroom Boulevard in Henrietta and at the West Webster Fire Department on Plank Road. Both will be open until 8 p.m.
There will also be dry ice available at the Williamson Fire Department at 6286 Lake Ave in Williamson and at the South Butler Fire Department on Route 89 in South Butler.
Both are open 24 hours a day until further notice.
