  1. Many homes and businesses are equipped with Burglar and Fire Alarms. Complete and mail the Alarm Registration Form to ensure your information is up-to-date with our Dispatch Center.
  2. For some residents your spring-cleaning lists already include yard work and while there are restrictions on what items are acceptable, perhaps an Open Burn Permit will suit your needs.
  3. If you’re planning on having a recreational fire or a bonfire/campfire at your residence, the Dispatch Center needs to be contacted.
  4. Visit the Emergency Management page to learn about what to do to be prepared for storms and disasters.
  5. Visit the Fire Marshal page to learn about fire prevention.
  6. Get important local alerts from the Town of East Lyme via calls to your home, work, cell phone, by email or text message.
  7. Stay up to date on upcoming storms and weather alerts by visiting www.ctalert.gov . The CT Alert ENS (Emergency Notification System) uses the state’s Enhanced 9-1-1 (E9-1-1) database for location-based notifications to the public for life-threatening emergencies. But the E9-1-1 database includes only traditional wire-line telephone numbers in the state (the “land line” phone you may have in your home). CT Alert ENS Citizen Sign-up page allows you to add other means of communication to the CT Alert ENS, in addition to your current home phone (land line, POTS). Take a moment to visit www.ctalert.gov and sign up your mobile devices to receive the alerts.
