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.

Detroit Trip July 18-21st

 Myself and a few old and new friends visited Detroit for a few days on one of the slowest times for the firefighters of Detroit. July 18-21st. Below are a few photos taken during the 36hr low in the action and a few rig shots. The rest for the Detroit firefighters was well deserved. As I work on my photo the last 24 hrs have been very busy for them.

 A few photos from our visit to Engine 52s Quarters, 
Thanks for the interesting conversation.

I will be post more photos of the city sites, Apparatus and Incidents over the next few days.
