National Grid : Although the blizzard was foremost in the minds of emergency

Although the blizzard was foremost in the minds of emergency personnel in Stoughton, it's not the only situation that calls for quick response.

The Stoughton Fire Department responded to five people who went into cardiac arrest during Tuesday's blizzard, according to Fire Chief Michael Laracy.

"We were busy a lot of the night during the blizzard," he said. "We responded to four of which were in town and one that was was not. One was storm-related."

The storm brought on a need for more personnel to battle the elements.

"With the conditions, we needed more manpower because it was very labor intensive," said Deputy Fire Chief Scott Breen. "We called in an extra engine company, which had three firefighters, and we had 14 day staff in the office. We had to shovel paths to get to people in time."

An Edison wire struck a house at 20 Duncan Road, which caused a small fire, he said.

Fewer than five National Grid customers were without power as of Wednesday night. The day before, more than 2,000 customers were left without electricity.

"At the height of the storm, Scituate and Stoughton had the most power outages," Breen said. "The crews have been working through the night. They are mostly on Turnpike Street and Route 139, but they are spread out. What happens is the feeders are connected to towns like Easton and surrounding towns with larger issues, so there's a trickle-down effect."

For those without power, Stoughton has opened up a warming station at the Senior Center, 110 Rockland St., until 6 p.m.

"People can stay warm and charge their electronic devices," Laracy said.

He also stressed that people can sign up for emergency alerts at www.stoughtonemg.org.

"It's a quick process," he said. "People can get a voicemail, text or email alerting them to emergency information. It's also good for family members and friends out of state."

Stoughton Police Lt. John Bonney added that there were some trees down during the height of the storm that impacted several streets, but they have been cleared.

But there were no major issues with the trees blocking the roads, thanks to the combined efforts of National Grid and the DPW, Laracy said.

"We are really that they work well together," he said. "They did a great job getting power restored quickly."
