11/25/2020 - Town Urges Residents to be Prepared

The staff of Darien Human Services maintains an Emergency Call List with the names of vulnerable seniors and individuals with disabilities to contact prior to and after a storm or town-wide emergency. The staff will provide reassurance, a wellness check and will inform residents of resources available in the community such as Emergency Shelters and Cooling or Charging Centers.  It is IMPERATIVE that residents who are vulnerable, or have medical conditions that might make them vulnerable during an emergency, notify Darien Human Services so their name can be added to our list. We can provide assistance or outreach in a town wide-emergency only if we are aware of a need. If you are a Darien resident and would like your name added to the Emergency Call List or are concerned about an elderly neighbor, please call Darien Human Services at 203-656-7328 or email Ali Ramsteck, Director, LCSW at aramsteck@darienct.gov.
