BERLIN, CT - With many roads across Connecticut still impassable as a result of the blizzard’s record-breaking snowfall, Connecticut Light & Power and Yankee Gas are helping the municipalities they serve with snow removal.

Approximately 50 pieces of CL&P and Yankee Gas snow removal equipment, including backhoes, dump trucks and trailers, will be deployed with over 40 company employees working as the equipment operators.

“We know that responding to Mother Nature’s wrath requires a coordinated, community response and working with the state, we’re glad we can provide this support to the towns and cities we serve,” said Bill Quinlan, CL&P Senior Vice President of Emergency Preparedness. “We greatly appreciate the willingness of our employees, members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Locals 420 and 457, to help address this urgent need for snow removal.”

Employees will be deployed from their normal work locations and begin work in Hartford, Waterbury and Meriden tonight. CL&P and Yankee Gas are working closely with the Connecticut Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (DEMHS) and the municipalities to coordinate the most efficient use of these resources.
