There will be a mutual aid drill between Wilton and New Canaan fire departments tonight, Thursday, Sept. 15 from 7-9 p.m.. The drill is a training exercise that will use water drafting as part of fighting a practice “fire” located in New Canaan.

Linden Tree Rd. neighbors can expect to see fire trucks and water tankers drafting water at Kent Pond opposite the vicinity of 57 Linden Tree Rd.. The emergency vehicles are expected to be operating on site for approximately two hours.

According to Wilton fire chief Ronald Kanterman, the department wanted to make sure the community and neighbors were kept informed and not alarmed. “This is a only a drill. You need to take no action.”
