The Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP) has just informed the Town that it will be conducting a prescribed burn in the Nehantic State Forest today – Sunday, May 2 – as the conditions are right. If residents see smoke or fire in the state forest today, there is no need to report it.
On Monday, Feb. 27, at 1:00 p.m., at the Lymes’ Senior Center, the center will offer a free training session in the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), which will be led by two local emergency medical technicians (EMTs), Colleen Atkinson and Doug LoPresti. The training session will explain how to recognize when someone is experiencing cardiac arrest and how to use this type of defibrillator. The EMTs will also demonstrate how to use hands-only CPR integrated with the use of an AED while waiting for an ambulance to arrive. The program is free and open to the public. To register for the free event, please call the senior center at 860-434-4127.
