With temps dropping every night and the forecast calling for a nor’easter heading in Wednesday, I’m very concerned. There are many seniors and families with small children still in the dark and they are cold. If your area is still out, please check on your neighbors. If you have power, please consider offering a warm place for those who don’t.
I’ve been working to get United Illuminating to step up their response to help everyone without power—my family included. I’m concerned that streets listed by United Illuminating over the last two days haven’t been worked on. I will continue to share with them your information and areas that are still out.
I also encourage you to call UI at 800-722-5584 to report your outage.
I promise to hold UI accountable for their response. Residents being with out power and heat for 8 days and counting is a serious public safety issue.
Here are the Fairfield streets that UI is working on today, and the company said work on these streets could impact those streets nearby:
ARAN HILL RD
HOYDENS HILL RD
GALLOPING HILL RD
BLACK ROCK TPKE
ROUND HILL RD
TOWNE HOUSE RD
ROLLING RIDGE RD
Fairfield beach-area residents must go through the town’s building department for details on the process to reconnect power to their homes.
I will send out additional information for protocols for beach area residents and FEMA information when I receive it this week. Please email me your questions directly and I’ll do my best to get them answered.
I’m also working on volunteer opportunities for residents who want to help our neighbors in the beach areas and those who suffered damage to their homes around the town. I’ll send that information once I have it.
