This office has developed and maintains a workable plan to enable the town to respond to local and regional emergencies which may be declared by the Federal government, the State, or the Town Manager. Schooling is also provided to volunteers to instruct them in the use of testing equipment involved in civil emergency operations. The town is linked to communication equipment of the Hartford and State Emergency System in order to be prepared for response to major and minor emergencies and civil alerts.
In the event of an emergency, residents should call 911. Information concerning natural or man-made disasters is announced over local radio station WTIC AM 1080.
