Portable light towers

Members of Wilton’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) practice setting up portable light towers on Monday night. These towers are part of a grant from the state. They inflate to 14 feet tall and have 110,000 lumens of light each. CERT plans to use them during emergencies, or planned evening events, to provide safe lighting for citizens. Photographer Paul Lourd said he took this photo when it was pitch black, adding, ‘They do work!’
