Danbury fire officials say a cat that was stuck in a tree for two days has been rescued. In a report to the City Council for their meeting tonight, the Fire Department said crews responded in the evening, but were unable to help the animal. Firefighters received another call the following day and found the cat about 30 feet up in a pine tree meowing loudly.
They used a 20-foot ladder and pike pole to move the car closer so they could grab it and bring it to the ground. The cat appeared to be uninjured, but was suffering from the affects of the weather and lack of food and water. DAWS was able to get in touch with the owner and return the animal.
The Danbury Fire Department emergency communications radio upgrade project is on hold until further notice due to the potential impacts on critical infrastructure. Last month the Department reported continued work with Northeastern Communications on the Abbey Woods site. The site ground work is complete, the radio cabinet is in, and the antennas are installed.
The last step is to configure the system and do acceptance testing.
