NOTICE: Emergency vehicles may be slow to respond in Wilton

Wilton Emergency Management reports tonight's severe weather event may delay the response time of emergency vehicles throughout town; including police, fire, and EMS vehicles.

Many of Wilton's windy and steep roads may be rendered impassable during the storm.

"Heavy snow and high winds can severely delay the response of emergency vehicles including Police, Fire and Ambulance," officials said.

Dangerous heating, light sources

The management team also asks residents to avoid any heating sources that may cause a fire or carbon monoxide emergency during the storm.

"Do not use candles for light, gas burning portable heaters, grills inside or keep generators too close to windows or doors. Also plan to clear furnace vents that could get covered in high or drifting snow," officials said.
