10/12/2018 - Town Requests Information from Residents and Businesses on Damages/Loss Related to September 25-26 Flooding

The Town of Fairfield's Emergency Management Team has announced that the State Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection’s Division of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP/DEMHS) has received communications from a number of municipalities regarding damages sustained as a result of the severe weather/flooding which occurred on 25-26 September, 2018. DESPP/DEMHS is undertaking an Initial Damage Assessment, (IDA) to estimate the extent of damage/loss sustained as a direct result of this event. Data collected during this IDA process will be used to determine whether damages resulting from this event are significant enough to justify a request for a joint Federal/State Preliminary Damage Assessment (PDA) and potentially a request for federal recovery assistance.

If you had damage/loss as a result of the September 25-26  severe weather event, please complete an online Damage Assessment Form.  Assessments received will be compiled by the Emergency Management Team and forwarded to DESPP/DEMHS.  We appreciate your help in collecting this data.  We must note that there is no damage reimbursement program for the September flooding that exists at this time.
