Southbury FD Working Around the Clock

The Southbury Volunteer Fire Department has responded to approximately 40 calls since the winter storm hit Southbury on Saturday.

Some of the busiest men and women since the October winter storm hit Southbury this weekend have been members of the Southbury Volunteer Fire Department.

The department has responded to approximately 40 calls since late Saturday evening, according to Southbury Firefighter Lieutenant Jason Decremer.

Decremer says most of the calls were regarding downed trees burning on wires, but some calls were unique.

The department has responded to a downed tree that fell on a house, the smell of electrical burning at a residence on Flag Swamp Road, and numerous public assistance calls to evacuate residents to town shelters.

Although the calls have slowed and the major roads are cleared, Decremer warned that some roads remain extremely dangerous.

“Many of the sides roads remain treacherous at this hour,” said Decremer. “We urge residents to use extreme caution and obey any road closure signs that are displayed.”
