Lamont Activates National Guard to Aid Power Restoration

“The Connecticut National Guard has been a major component in our efforts to minimize the impact of COVID-19 in our state, and now we’re also calling on their service to help our residents out following another major weather event,” Lamont said.

“We continue to work with our municipal counterparts to help ensure they have what they need to restore power and clear our roadways.

The soldiers and airmen of the Connecticut National Guard have provided similar support during recent major weather events, including the May 2018 microbursts that severely affected towns in the southwestern portion of the state.

On Wednesday, Lamont declared a state of emergency in response to the tropical storm.
