The town's emergency operations center, at Wilton police headquarters, will open on Monday to coordinate emergency services during Hurricane Sandy. Town officials are urging residents to prepare for the storm this weekend.
"This is a major threat to Wilton," an emergency notification said. "Please visit the town website (wiltonct.org) for detailed emergency preparedness information. Be sure to have adequate food and water supplies to last at least 3-4 days. Move items that could be blown away by high winds to protected areas to avoid damage and injuries. Prepare candles and flashlights for expected power outages due to downed trees and power lines. Fill autos with gasoline, as supplies might run out if fuel deliveries are impacted."
