FAIRFIELD - The unofficial start of summer means the official start of hurricane season.

Sandy struck the region around seven months ago, but the widespread damage is all too fresh on the minds of homeowners and emergency planners. In Fairfield, officials say they are now better prepared for future storms and will not be hesitant to ask outside municipalities for assistance.

Planners attended the National Hurricane Conference in New Orleans this past March to ensure their safety methods were up-to-date.
