HARTFORD, CT - Governor Ned Lamont today announced that he will partially activate the state’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 19, 2019 to monitor storm conditions across the state. Forecasts are showing a range of accumulating snow, sleet, and freezing rain.

“We continue to monitor the most up-to-date forecasts on this weekend’s impending storm,” Governor Lamont said. “After being briefed on the latest information from the state’s emergency management officials, we have decided to partially activate the emergency operations center to monitor storm conditions and coordinate any assistance that may be necessary.”

The governor has reached out to executives from the state’s major utility companies to discuss preparations in advance of the storm.

During the partial activation, the EOC will be staffed with personnel from the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (including the Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security, the State Police, and the Commission on Fire Prevention and Control), the Department of Transportation, the Connecticut National Guard, the Department of Public Health, and liaisons from Eversource and United Illuminating.
