UPDATE: Thanks to our Police Department, Fire Department, Municipal Light Plant, Public Works, and mutual aid provided by Wakefield, Mansfield, and Burlington, VT we have many of our major roadways cleared and power restored to 99% of our community. Crews are working to restore power to a remaining 70 homes. Please continue to be vigilant and stay away from downed power lines, always assume they are live.
If trees are down in your area, please report them, especially if they are blocking your road, driveway, or may be causing a dangerous situation. If trees/branches are on sidewalks, the side of the road, or in safe areas like a yard please be patient as crews are working to clear areas of most immediate threat first. Thank you for your understanding, the crews are working hard to help our community.
The Concord Municipal Light Department, Tree and Highway Departments are working to clear the streets of fallen trees, limbs and power lines. Currently there are approximately 300 customers without power and CMLP is working as quickly as possible to restore power to those affected. Please keep in mind due to the high number of outages it will take time to restore service to all customers.
For those without power or heat and have no alternative plans that may need emergency assistance: beginning at 4:30PM the Harvey Wheeler Community Center will be open as a warming center and staying open overnight staffed by Town of Concord employees for those who are without power/heat. If you need help getting to the Harvey Wheeler, please contact the Concord Police Department at 978-318-3400.
The Concord Fire Department is asking residents to insure that any heating or dryer vents are clear and free of snow or blockage.
The Concord Police Departments ask the residents to refrain from walking on trails of conservation land due to snow laden or weakened trees and limbs.
In addition if you encounter any type of utility line on the ground or low hanging wire to assume that it is energized and not to try to remove it yourself.
Contact the Concord Police Department at 978-318-3400 to report any safety concerns or questions. Please check on any neighbors who may need assistance.
