National Guard checkpoints protecting Fairfield Beach end Thursday, Nov. 8.

“Now that power has been restored to almost all of the Beach Area we want to thank the National Guard for their help during this emergency,” First Selectman Michael Tetreau said in a Code RED message Thursday.

There will be an increased police presence in the beach area while property owners work to restore their homes.

Southern Connecticut Gas continues to work to restore the gas main on Fairfield Beach Road, Tetreau said.

Crews are on site, and have the towns approval to reconnect gas service to homes.

“We are sorry for any of the miscommunication over the few days concerning

gas hook ups,” Tetreau said.

Questions should be directed to Southern Connecticut Gas at 1-800-659-8299, and not the town’s Building Department.

Anyone who smells natural gas should get out of the building and call 911.

Southern Connecticut Gas will not turn on the gas at any house unless someone is

present.

“If you are not going to be at your home on Fairfield Beach Road, you will need to call the Gas Company to make special arrangements,” Tetreau said.

Debris and bulky material pickup at curbside will continue.

Thursday, the town sent “what we hope to be our last CodeRed message.”

The call center is closing Thursday.

The Senior Center is open.

Information on making donations toward recovery efforts will be released Thursday.

“We want to thank all our residents for their patience and understanding especially for their cooperation during the evacuation and staying off the streets when requested during the storm,” Tetreau said.

“A big thank you to our emergency services personnel, town employees and volunteers who did so much throughout the storm,” he added.
