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

Detorit, MI. Box Alarm 10-28-10

About 15min after leaving the fire at Harbough Detroit fire dispatched a Box for 4072 Cabet, a short distance down the road. We followed the glow in and arrived first due to find the front on a 1.5 story dwelling involved with a neighbor using a garden hose, trying to contain the fire. The winds were blowing and keeping a lot of the smoke and ash low as you will see in the photos. The ladder was first in and stretched a red line for exposure protection. The engine stretched in and attached the main fire. The fire was contained to the fire building.The Neighbor waves to the first in company to show the location of the fire. The Garden hose attackfirst due truck goes to work with a red-line for exposure protection The engine hooks up the attack lineJust as the engine dumps the monitor, the steam
