My blog was down temporarily. The following is the text from the Code Red message issued around 12:00 Noon today.
Naugatuck’s Emergency Operations Center (“EOC”) will remains activated at the Naugatuck Fire Station. The Borough has public works crews and contractors scheduled for the following areas today: Both sections of the Indian Hills area; the Ridge off Osborn Road; Andrew Mountain Road; Anderson and School Street; between Aetna Street and Millville Avenue; and the Brittany Woods/Gail Drive area. We are attempting to obtain additional resources, and would deploy them upon receipt to the Platts Mill and Beacon Manor areas. All schedules are subject to changes resulting from responding to 911 emergencies.
Overnight, progress made to open and clear roads in several locations on or near: Field Street, Deepwood Road, Timothy Lane, Mill Street, North Hoadley Street, Round Hill Circle, King Street, Bridal Trail Drive, and section of Millville Avenue. Once again, progress was slowed by the need to respond to 911 emergencies.
The Borough has once again requested additional resources from private contractors with large equipment, as well as from state sources. The need for such equipment is very high throughout the Connecticut, and not readily available. Personnel and contractors are working around the clock as hard as possible to clear roads and remove snow.
We realize that everyone wants information about when their particular street is being plowed. Unfortunately a significant amount of time is being devoted by all of us responding to such phone calls, emails and other communications on social media. We attempt to provide information about where plowing efforts are being focused as soon as it is available. The reality is, however, that it still may be a couple days before all roads are cleared in Naugatuck and throughout most of Connecticut. Please limit your communications to emergency management personnel and departments to emergency situations and requests for assistance. No one’s street is going to be plowed sooner because of constant requests to do so. Please call 911 for emergencies, and call the Naugatuck Fire Department at 203-720-7083 for all other requests for assistance.
Naugatuck Schools will be closed on Monday (2/11/2013).
Please refrain from travel if at all possible as road conditions remain hazardous in many locations.
We will have another update shortly.
