We continue to have generator problems at that one Troop (I-Bethany) Public Communications A request for a deployable wireless site has been referred. We are experiencing an increase in requests for generators to power SLCs. Additionally, due to reports of widespread tree damage, increase in backhaul connectivity troubles being realized.

Fuel Task Force Fuel Supplies: DCP and Independent CT Petroleum Assoc. reporting all shoreline terminals are open and supplies are sufficient. There remains a supply disruption from Middletown north to Wethersfield however this should not create a distribution problem. Some gas stations with generators can only transact cash sales. Municipal Fueling: DOT has been very responsive to municipal requests for fuel for emergency and maintenance vehicles. They have identified strategic fueling locations for 24 hour availability. The instructions on how to access the 6 locations (Rocky Hill, Waterbury, Cornwall, Windsor, Winchester, Farmington) are posted on the DOT and DEMHS web pages. Fueling to the DOT pumps is on schedule. Service Plazas: All twenty-one DOT service plazas are open (Rte 15, I-395 and I-95). Emergency Generators: Experiencing numerous requests for generators. A request was made to FEMA at 16:00 hrs. 10/31/11 for an additional 54 units. This was reduced by FEMA to 42 units which are en route to CT from Maryland. An Action Request Form (ARF) is being processed for Prime Power Survey Teams to be deployed. DEMHS is working on the options to obtain additional generator resources. Deployments will be based on the Prime Power Survey. The EOC has also sent out a survey to EMDs to determine any additional generator needs. List of Available Gas Stations: DCP continues to update the list of open gas stations for 2-1-1 information. This is an ever changing situation with those stations with power requiring re-fueling on a more frequent basis. Latest update from DCP was 15:43 hrs.

ESF8 Public Health and Medical Services Department of Public Health Hospital Status: 6 Hospitals show their Emergency Operations centers either partially or fully operating, they are: Bristol Hospital Saint Francis Hospital Waterbury Hospital Charlotte Hungerford Hospital Danbury Hospital New Milford Hospital Johnson Memorial and New Milford Hospitals continue to operate on generator power Received a notification New Milford Hospital Morgue at capacity. No assistance required at this time. Charlotte Hungerford and Middlesex Hospitals report they each have satellite cancer treatment centers still without power threatening patient care. CL&P reported as actively working on power restoration. Charlotte Hungerford reports that they are beginning implementation of their contingency planning for their radiation oncology patients. They are presently triaging these patients and expect to begin transferring some to Midstate at 18:00. Hospitals continue to struggle with staffing issues related their inability to contact some employees and limited gas supply for personal vehicles for transportation into worksites.

Significant numbers of persons continue to present at emergency departments due to carbon monoxide exposure, often the result of unsafe cooking and heating practices. DPH continues to work to improve public awareness of this issue. Presently we have received reports from 19 acute care facilities relaying an estimated total of 135 patients seen at their EDs for carbon monoxide exposure during this event. The CT Poison Control Center reports approximately 100 consults with facilities regarding CO poisoned patients. They relate that these are primarily due to indoor use of charcoal grills and also the use of generators in close proximity to buildings. They further report that most victims did not have working CO detectors with battery backup and recommends continued public information efforts to address these three issues. 75 nursing homes and 23 residential care homes are on generator power as of 13:00 Veteran's Affairs/Newington Campus is reporting that they are on generator power WIC Update: Because of the power outage, plans have been made to transfer WIC services from the Burgdorf Clinic on Coventry Street (Hartford) to Community Health Services (CHS) at 500 Albany Avenue (Hartford) beginning tomorrow November 1. State WIC IT staff, State WIC Nutrition staff and Hartford WIC staff will make the transition first thing in the morning and hopefully be able to serve clients immediately. Another update will be sent in the morning when the infrastructure is up and tested as logistics are not 100% sure at this time. Once operational, clients will be contacted as to the change in location. Additionally, State WIC staff and WIC staff at the Park Street WIC site have been notified for directing clients, and signs will be posted at the Burgdorf clinic. Contact has been made with the Chief Operating Officer at CHS who has confirmed the use of this location for the remainder of the week, should it be necessary. Three, free standing residential substance abuse facilities, one with a woman and childrens program have evacuated to sister facilities. Six, Mental Health Community Residence/Mental Health Residential Living Centers have evacuated to sister facilities and/or shelters. There are currently 81 nursing homes and 29 residential care homes on generator. Two nursing homes have identified a reserve of fuel for two days, however are having difficulty arranging a delivery. They have been referred to the local emergency management director for further assistance. FLIS has been unable to make contact with 6 facilities, on-site visits are scheduled.
