Public Safety Operations

Old Lyme public safety services including Fire, EMS, and Police are fully functional. If the needs arise to call 911 to report an emergency, advise the dispatcher of any COVID-19 related symptoms or issues that may exist for that call. This will give first responders the ability to better prepare themselves for any type of response. 

Remain Vigilant

During this time it is imperative that all persons practice recommendations provided by public health officials. Those include practicing social distancing, refraining from touching your face, avoiding crowds, using appropriate methods to clean surfaces, and practicing personal hygiene including washing your hands.
