Keeping Updated in an Emergency
Getting information during an emergency situation is vital, especially at the height of the event, when evacuation may be required. Keep a battery-operated radio handy. Radio and television stations provide the quickest means to obtain information. Town emergency information will be broadcast over radio stations WTIC-AM (1080 AM) and WTIC-FM (96.5 FM) as well as cable television channels 5 (Nutmeg Community Television and 21 (Nutmeg Government & Education).
Check on Relatives and Neighbors During storms and other emergency events, check to see how your relatives and neighbors are coping, especially senior citizens and persons with disabilities. If possible, consider helping them plan or locate resources for assistance. The Canton Department of Senior & Social Services can be reached at (860) 693-5811.
