During the time frame of the storm from March 7-8, 2018 the Wilton Police Department responded to 211 calls for service. Of these, there were 4 accidents and 141 calls related to road conditions such as downed trees and/or wires. In total, approximately 192 separate locations were identified on more than 100 separate roads as having a road condition issue such as a downed tree and/or wire or trees leaning on wires. At the height, we had over 30 roads that were complete closures. This is nearly double the amount when comparing this storm to Hurricane Sandy.
The Wilton Police Department thanks all emergency services including Wilton Fire and EMS, the Town's Public Works and Parks and Recreation crews for their tireless work since the storm hit to get us at where we are presently with all roads passable. The Department also thanks, Wilton CERT for their invaluable assistance. Finally, the Department thanks our residents for their patience during this unprecedented weather event.
In closing, the Wilton Police Department would like to extend our appreciation and gratitude to all of our residents who assisted us and remained patient throughout this process. Many of you helped us in identifying and tracking the damage which helped us collaborate successfully with Emergency Operations Center personnel. We could not have been successful without your support.
