Letter: Fairfield is 'An Extraordinary Community'

Resident Anthony Calabrese reflects on the town, emergency personnel, and volunteers' responses to Hurricane Sandy and the nor'easter.

Dear Editor,

I’d like to thank all the Town of Fairfield employees, Emergency Call Center workers, Police Department, Fire Department, Public Works Department, Health Department, National Guard, and Elected Officials for working diligently around the clock to keep our town safe and informed during Hurricane Sandy and the most recent Nor'easter.

These storms devastated much of our community, many of us lost power, heat, water, and some lost homes and vehicles.  It was in this time of peril that our town came together to work as one to help each other get through this tough time.  There have been many volunteer groups organized and countless phone calls of people offering help to our community.

I’m proud to say that I live in Fairfield and am raising my family here. This town is not just an ordinary town, this is an extraordinary community in every sense of the word.

Thank you Fairfield!



Anthony Calabrese

I agree! Our officials kept us up-to-date with the Code Red Alerts and even with the loss of power for 7 days my family knew the Town of Fairfield was working around the clock to get things repaired, cleaned up and back to normal as orderly and quickly as possible. The volunteerism seen this past weekend at the beach is just another reflection of our wonderful community and the people who care about it.

Great job everyone.....It was amazing that most everyone had power back within a week and the volunteer effort was equally as impressive.
