Fire and Emergency Medical Services

As currently proposed, the Milford fire department will be hiring nine new firemen and purchasing additional equipment to handle the impact of the casino.

Norwich, CT is of similar demographics to Milford. In 2011 the 911 call volume for Milford was 6,436.[1] The 911 call volume for Norwich in 2011 was 23,064.[2]

Milford’s hospital, Milford Regional Medical Center, received no mitigation money.

We also have a concern that the most direct route from the casino to the hospital is the most congested route in town. And a request for a health facility at the casino was turned down.
