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

Poquonnock (Groton) 1st Alarm Brush fire 02-26-12

PBFD was dispatched to a brush fire on the board walk near Depot RD. PGs Fort Hill station found a active brush fire behind the station heading to the direction of Bluff Point. G-38 requested a first alarm brush fire response with recall of off duty FFs. The fire was threatening several homes and out buildings and the bridge along the boardwalk. M/A companies responded and set up South East of the station to help control the wind fed fire. Several calls from concerned residences about the fire nearing the homes came into dispatch. The fire was under control in about 30 mins, minor damage to some out buildings and fences. The fire is under investigation.
