Though the Blizzard of 2015 did not pan out to be the blockbuster that was predicated for New Canaan, NC Fire was well prepared and staffed by both career and volunteer firefighters ready to respond. Citizens of New Canaan should rest assured that during large scale events such as what was anticipated the town is fully covered by a standing army of first responders.
