Newtown’s Emergency Management Office urges residents to be prepared for severe cold weather to ensure personal safety and readiness. People are also reminded to take action to protect pets and are asked to check on any elderly or frail neighbors to be certain they are doing OK in this weather. Several places will be open as warming centers for people to get out of the cold. The Municipal Center at the Fairfield Hills campus will be open today from am to pm and tomorrow from am to pm. The Library, senior center and Edmond Town Hall are open during normal hours.
