On the emergency contact list?

About 100 people are currently listed on the social services emergency contact list of seniors and disabled residents who live in Wilton. The department uses this list to check their well-being during any catastrophic event that may hit Wilton.

A press release from the Wilton police department recently requested neighbors of those residents who may need assistance during emergencies “take notice of them” during the upcoming hurricane season.

“Our goal is to have one hundred percent participation of those who may need our assistance during a catastrophe event in Wilton,” the press release reads. “It is important to know who they are, where they live, the special needs affected by loss of power and who we may contact in the event of an emergency.”

The list is confidential.

They ask neighbors to encourage those in need to contact social services at 203-834-6238 to be placed on the emergency list.
