As Connecticut residents recover from Tropical Storm Isaias, a number of municipalities are offering charging stations, allowing those without power to revive their devices.

Here are a few options, among others.

Torrington officials said a charging station was available in front of City Hall.

“The City of Torrington will be operating a charging a station in front of City Hall during business hours. Residents are asked to bring their own charging device and limit their charging time to one hour. Social distancing and masks must be worn while utilizing the charging stations,” Fire Chief Peter Towey said in a press release.

New Haven residents can visit their local public library branch during normal business hours to charge their devices, according to city spokesman Gage Frank.



The city is also offering 1-gallon bags of ice for folks who need to keep medication cool, Frank said. Those in need can call 203-946-8221 to request ice.

If there is an emergency such as a downed tree or power line, residents can call the Emergency Operations Center at 203-946-8221.

Bridgeport residents can charge devices at the following city schools, according to Mayor Joe Ganim: Beardsley, Harding High School, Johnson, Roosevelt, Hooker, Dunbar and Discover.


Stamford officials are offering a charging station at Westhill High School, 125 Roxbury Road from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., officials said on Facebook.

In Danbury, residents can fill water containers and charge their devices at fire department headquarters, 9 New St. The fire department encourages residents to help themselves, but to maintain social distancing.


The fire headquarters is closed due to the coronavirus and is only open for this storm emergency.
