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

As of July 2017, my site has had 319000 hits thanks for viewing. If you keep coming I will keep posting. First time visitors for older post click on the month links right side.

Remember: I'm not able to make every major event, so if you get some photos or video and would like to share them, please contact me @

If your interested in viewing all of the incident photos or purchasing a photo That I have taken click here.

This site will work with mobile devices.

NLCFC Long Island trip, 07-21-07

Sorry for the Delay

Wednesday, July 18, 2007

I would like to thank you all again for visiting; in the next couple weeks this site will reach 40,000 hits not too bad for a local site. I would also like to thank all my support team, the early warning team for the heads up phone calls, My fellow fire buffs that send me their photos, with out all of them we all would miss a lot of the action. Then the fire officers and their departments, with out them allowing me access, none of this would be possible. So thanks again. If any one has any media that they would like to share please do so, with NLC or one of the other sites. If any one is interested in a copy of a photo, just contact me, at See you on the fire ground, Rob
