Middlefield, CT

From: Peter Tyc
Fire Chief Middlefield Volunteer Fire Company

On Saturday December 3, 2016 at 8:00am an emergency response drill will be conducted for the communities surrounding Middlefield on Orchard Lane in Middlefield Ct. The drill will test the capabilities of Middlefield emergency response services, the surrounding communities and hazardous material teams to manage an emergency involving multiple jurisdictions and response agencies. The exercise will be postponed until December 4 in the event of inclement weather.

The drill will be a progressive type scenario and will engage a variety of response organizations. These will include at a minimum Fire, Ambulance, Emergency Management, and Hazardous Materials and local hospital. The resources will come from various regions of Connecticut.

The news media is invited to cover the drill activities. The drill site will be arranged for media coverage but access will be restricted to registered media participants. Please contact the office of JLN Associates, or Chief Tyc with names and cell numbers of staff whom will be participating at the drill site.

Information dissemination will be a drill objective; we ask that your organization participate in receiving information as they would in a real event (media briefings). The site will open to media at 8:00 am for registration and set-up.
