The hurricane season is far from over and with a few hundred people without electricity in Ridgefield last night because of the storm, some minds are turning to the weeks long outages from Sandy, Irene and that October snow.
Ridgefield now has a 450 kilowatt diesel generator at the Recreation Center.
The equipment was delivered last week and is in place if a big storm hits the region. The generator was purchased used and it's fuel tank has come from the now-town-owned Schlumberger property.
Town officials say the equipment is only slightly used, 500 hours, and has a year warranty.
