Can we get this information out to people who don't have internet access??

A big thank you to all the local businesses and churches who provided these services. It is such a shame the First Selectman had NO plan in place for any of this. No postings online, no signs, no reverse 911 authorization, nothing. You have to spread the word and hope. One would of thought ensuring the towns people had what they needed in a disaster would be priority ONE for the town CEO! Please vote November 8 everyone!!!

Although it was extremely challenging to get the Town's message to everyone, we tried to reach everyone by using the following: calls to all parents through the school's reverse phone program and to all residents with reverse 911, registration on the State's 211 assistance hotline, police cruisers going through neighborhoods with loudspeakers announcing food and shelter information, radio, television and newspaper interviews and signs at the high school and major areas of town. This was all done under my direction as our Emergency Management Director did not seem to have a communication plan.

Finally, I can't thank the hundreds of volunteers and dedicated crews of town and electrical/tree workers who have worked tirelessly to keep everyone safe, fed and housed and continue to get the power back to all our residents. Through this all East Windsor residents have continued to be the ever resourceful, good neighbors, helping each other and keeping a positive attitude. Thank you all.
