Warming Center open today (Sunday) in Senior Center


KENT – Due to some extensive power outages overnight, the Town of Kent has opened the Kent Warming Center inside the Kent Senior Center at 16 Swift Lane today (Sunday, March 24).

Any residents in need of a place to go to keep warm are urged to go to the building to charge phones/computers, connect to wifi, and stay warm while Eversource works to restore power. There is water and coffee available and Kent’s Emergency Management personnel are on hand to assist residents with any questions.

First Selectman Marty Lindenmayer issued his thanks via email to the Kent Volunteer Fire Department volunteer responders and Fire Chief Alan Gawel for responding to calls early this morning. He also thanked Emergency Management Director Brian Hunt and his team, who got the Warming Center up and running. He encouraged checking for updates on Emergency Management’s Facebook page, X (formerly Twitter), and checking emails from the town regarding the restoration of power.
