First In

I welcome you to my blog site; I hope to show you the fire service in NLC in some interesting events. During the next few years, I will improve on the content and photos to keep you coming back for more. I take pride in my photography and try my best to be first in when possible. The majority of the photos will be from the Norwich companies & surrounding area departments, but sometimes I Buff out of state cities for a change of pace.

As of late I have missed or worked a lot of the incidents. I have a great support group of Photographers to help the site keep up with all the incidents. There are too many to list, So thanks for your support. Thanks for visiting and enjoy .RD Ladd

East Great Plain fire department, Car fire RT-32
(location across from the Norwich Inn and spa)

Norwich fire department, Boat fire. This late fall boat fire destroyed by a fast moving fire, due to the cities fire boat being removed from the river about 2hrs before for winter storage. Handlines and a floating pump was needed to extinguish this fire.

Submarine Base Fire Department, An electrical vault and transformer exploded and burned, several mutual aid departments responded, due to over 15 Box alarms and smells of smoke until the source of the problem was found .
