Though the Blizzard of 2015 did not pan out to be the blockbuster that was predicated for New Canaan, NC Fire was well prepared and staffed by both career and volunteer firefighters ready to respond. Citizens of New Canaan should rest assured that during large scale events such as what was anticipated the town is fully covered by a standing army of first responders.
It is not just the citizens of New Canaan that rely on the Fire Department for help in the time of need but also the town’s wildlife. New Canaan Fire recently aided saving a deer trapped in a partially frozen pond.
