“The City of Hartford was not hit as hard as other cities and towns in Connecticut but our preparation greatly mitigated the impact of Hurricane Sandy on our residents and will facilitate a quick and efficient recovery,” said Mayor Segarra. “We had all emergency crews activated early and we aggressively communicated to our residents the status of the storm at all times. Hartford Public Schools and City Offices will be open tomorrow, Wednesday, October 31. Families can move forward with their Halloween plans. Now we are in full recovery and response mode and we are doing everything possible to return to normalcy. Over half of the 3,500 residents who lost power have had it restored. The City of Hartford is extending Police and Fire Mutual Aid to other towns and cities in need of these particular recovery services.”
