Team Rubicon Deployed for Storm Clean Up 

The Town of Bethany has announced that additional assistance in the clearing and hauling of damaged brush and limbs to the curb from the tornado and thunderstorm of August 27th will be available beginning Saturday, September 5th.  The Town is appreciative of the efforts of Team Rubicon and other Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (VOADs) including United Way 211, The Salvation Army and the American Red Cross, to coordinate this project and provide much needed assistance to those severely impacted by this event.
Residents may call 211, select option 3 and remain on the line, or visit their website at 211 CT to register their address and complete a short survey to determine needs and eligibility. Priorities will be given to those with financial hardship, senior citizens, functional needs, veterans and similar factors. All removal work will be coordinated through the Town’s unified command and the State of CT Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security.
Local residents who are also interested in volunteering their time to support this effort, may contact 211.

  • Lift the gasoline dispenser with a paper towel or use a disposable glove.
