Several businesses in the Danbury area donated bottles of water to the City for distribution to residents impacted by a water main break. More than 85,000 bottles were donated. They were distributed at Danbury Fire Headquarters, with the help of 11 senior officers and 25 cadets from the Civil Air Patrol's 399th Composite Squadron. Colonel James Ridley, Civil Air Patrol Connecticut Wing Commander, issued the mobilization order to the Danbury squadron at their weekly meeting. Deputy Fire Chief Joe Halas said he was surprised by the large turnout of cadets and was grateful for the squadron's assistance.
