A Year Later, Simsbury Confident With Storm Plan

Simsbury Town Offices.

Just about a year after Simsbury was among the hardest hit municipalities from an October snowstorm, town officials have already met to discuss the possibility of a visit next week in some form from Hurricane Sandy.

Any impact is still days away but given that the town suffered extensive damage last year, officials are reviewing emergency plans now, some of which were implemented after last year.  Administrative Services Director Tom Cooke says being on the same page with Connecticut Light and Power crews for whatever the next storm brings is something they’ve worked on.

Cooke says they’ve been reassured they’ll have a liason to the town and that a line crews will be available.

He says even though their crews were in place last year, it took about a week to restore power due to the number of trees that brought down power lines.  Cooke says CL-and-P’s tree-trimming operations this year put them in a better position to mobilize if the need arises.
