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

Bozrah Tree on car.

Mid afternoon on March 2, 2017 Gardner Lake & American Medics came across a Tree on a car on Rt-163 in Bozrah, while transporting a patient. Due to transporting GLFD redirected after calling dispatch and requesting Bozrah Fire Department to respond for a uninjured occupant that needed to be freed from the SUV. The American chase car stayed with the occupant of the car until, Bozrah Fire arrived. Once they arrived the crew used chainsaws to cut the limbs and branches away from the drivers door. Once the the door was freed, they waled the occupant out of the hazard zone to safety. In total 5 trees came down at once, 3 covered the SUV.
