FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Fairfield officials are asking residents to take a few precautions when dealing with the snowstorm over the next few days.
“Our Emergency Management Team is monitoring this storm closely,” First Selectman Michael Tetreau said in a press release. “It is still too early to tell the exact timing and impact on our town, but whenever the storm hits we will be ready to respond.”
Fairfield officials ask residents not to park on the side of roads to give plows space to clear the streets. They also suggest staying off the road if possible between Thursday evening and Saturday morning when the storm is expected to clear.
Fairfielders are also asked to occasionally check in on neighbors, especially those who are elderly and live alone. High winds could knock out power in some areas, leaving some without communications or heat.
Forecasters also expect some coastal flooding during the high tide at 9:45 p.m. Friday. Officials recommend that beach-area residents, especially on Fairfield Beach Road, move their cars to higher ground for the high tide.
