STRATFORD - Unplowed streets are creating difficulties for emergency responders throughout the state.

In Stratford, firefighters and EMS crews are on constant duty as residents with medical needs struggle to navigate through the snow. Assistant Fire Chief John Conway says personnel used a sled to help transport one man to his dialysis appointment.

With fire hydrants and sidewalks also covered in snow, firefighters have been forced to dig out before actually helping those in need. 

Gov. Dannel Malloy has reached out to local fire departments to offer state assistance.
