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 @

Detroit, MI 07/19-20/12

The time from 12pm on the 19th till 00:30am on the 20th a 36hrs period was a quite for the city, very little to no action.  Even the false alarms were down. So we did a little site seeing and visited Engine 52. Below are a few photos from the city.
