**Update on Winter Storm in Southbury**
Southbury residents-please be aware that although the travel ban has been lifted, road conditions are making travel difficult. If at all possible, please remain at home until our crews can clear the roads. Please allow for extra time in the morning when getting to work. Region 15 has canceled school for Wednesday, March 15.
- If you have a medical emergency, please call 911.
- If you are without power, please call Eversource at 1-800-286-2000.
- If you have wires down that are creating an immediate safety hazard, please call 911.
- If you have non-emergency issues, please wait until the storm has passed.
- Please do not call the Public Works Department or the Police Department to have your road plowed-our crews will get to each road as soon as possible.
- Police, Fire, and Ambulance remain on stand-by to respond to any emergencies as they arise.
We thank you for your patience as the town continues to respond to the heavy snowfall.
Jeff Manville-First Selectman
The Town of Southbury Emergency Operations Center remains open on a partially staffed basis. The storm continues to rage. Please remain indoors. The Governor's travel ban remains in effect until further notice.
If you experience a medical emergency, call 911. If wires are blown down and are causing a dangerous situation call 911. Non-emergency issues should wait until the storm has passed.
Our Public Works department remains on the road plowing. They are working long hours to make the roads as passable as possible, however, you should stay off the roads. If conditions are not safe, drivers may take a break until conditions allow safe travel. Please do not call public works or the police department to have your road plowed. They will get to them as they can. If there is an emergency in your area, the plows will respond along with emergency responders to clear the way.
First Responders, Fire, Ambulance, and Police remain on standby, ready to respond to any emergency. They will do their best to respond to all emergencies but must exercise caution and will need to prioritize calls.
Finally, please stay off the roads for your safety as well as the safety of our plow drivers, Police, Ambulance, and Fire. Please, check with your neighbors, especially the elderly and women late in their pregnancy. When clearing snow, stay hydrated, and lift carefully.
We will post updates as they become available.
First Selectman Jeff Manville
