Did You Hear … ?

First Selectman Rob Mallozzi on Saturday night ventured forth on his first fire call in some six years. A volunteer firefighter from 2004 to 2009 who also had served as secretary of New Canaan Fire Company No.1, Mallozzi responded Saturday night to a report of an alarm at Saxe Middle School as a severe storm moved through New Canaan, bringing down wires on Jelliff Mill Road and causing outages. Asked about the call, Mallozzi said he radioed in, went to Saxe, walked around the property, met a key holder there and went in. ***
