Naugatuck’s Emergency Operations Center (“EOC”) will remain activated at the Naugatuck Fire Station until further notice. As of the current time, the Borough has the following Public Works and Contractor equipment plowing roads and removing snow: five (5) loaders, five (5) large plow trucks and two (2) backhoes. Crews are currently working in multiple locations attempting to open and widen main roads, and are beginning to address some of the side streets off the main roads.
Many communities throughout Connecticut are experiencing the same difficulty removing the large amount of snow that accumulated during the blizzard. The small plow trucks in the Borough’s fleet are not effective for clearing large amounts of snow from our roads. While we understand that this is frustrating for many, we appreciate everyone’s patience as our crews work throughout the night to open streets and allow for safe passage on our roads.
Travel remains dangerous throughout the Borough. While Governor Malloy has lifted the statewide travel ban, we strongly urge all residents to refrain from travel if at all possible.
If you are experiencing an emergency, please call 911. For all non-emergency calls, please contact the Naugatuck Fire Department at 203-720-7083.
Please make sure your furnace vent, if it exits out the side of your house, is clear of snow. Dangerous levels of carbon monoxide will build up inside if the pipe is blocked.
