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

Detroit Rock City 10/26-29th coming soon

Coming soon
I joined some friends on a trip to Detroit days before Devils Night, now called Angles Night. The city was getting active with about 30+ fires of different degrees of fire conditions. We took in about 20 of them, made it too about 15 and shoot photos of about 10 of them. We left just as Angles night details hit the streets. As I type this 2 working fires are accruing in the city with the sun starting to set. Several agencies with hundreds of people will be paroling the streets to protect 60.000 vac building. Several hundred buffs, sparks or what your section of the world calls them, will be covering the action. (I hope they have plenty of memory cards or film) it sounds like they will need it. It will take a few days to edit and post all the photos. I will also adding most of the photos to my Smugmug site in the next week.
