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 Still Alarm, 1901 Davison 10-28-12

  At 04:20, While parked down the street at Burger King, one of the group noticed what looked like a column of stream coming from a building. After a minute or two we noticed a flicker and decided it was a fire. As we left the lot a PD car drove past and and got to the location before us. They turned around and called as we pulled up, it turned out to be a small Bus fire between two buildings. The location was 1901 Davison. About 10 minutes later the Still was dispatched, the engine arrived within a few minutes and knocked down the fire, No extension into the building due to cinder-block wall construction.
