Grassy Hill Road will be closed until further notice while repairs are being made. The recent hurricane undermined a section of the road just north of Blood Street. The brook washed away a significant section of the road over the brook. The Town is having the area assessed and repairs approved. If possible, one lane may be opened after inspection if the engineers deem it safe.
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.
