Conn. Storm Committee to Hear from Utility Unions

Posted by jcashman

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s committee that’s examining the response to the recent tropical storm and snow storm is expected to hear from unions that represent electrical and telecommunications workers.

The so-called Two Storm Committee, which meets on Friday, is also scheduled to hear from the president of the Connecticut Fire Chiefs Association, and representatives from fire departments in Danbury, Hartford, Milford and Bridgeport. Also a representative of the Meriden Police Department is expected to address the group.

The panel has been charged with reviewing the preparedness and response of the state, local cities and towns, the utilities and other groups to the two storms, which both left hundreds of thousands without power for days.

The committee is supposed to make their recommendations to Malloy sometime in December.
