 Important info: 

 Please remember that the incidents you read about below are more "newsworthy" than our everyday type of incident.  Local 1522 takes great pride in handling many of our responses without "fanfare".  We respond to over 6,000 calls for service per year with an average response time of approx. 3 minutes.  The calls we are most proud of are the heart attacks or the "small fires" that are kept under control by responding quickly, effectively, and efficiently. 

We would not be able to complete our mission without the support of the residents of the City of New London.  Thank you!

Working Fire 42 Terrace Ave.

At 0300 hours on 12/10/15 Group 3 responded to a reported structure fire. A-21 arrived on scene and reported a working fire. Tenants on the first floor where the fire originated had been sleeping at the time of the fire. Smoke detectors and a CO detector alerted them to the fire and they were able to exit the building prior to our arrival. A-200 did a search of the second floor smoke filled apartment and found the tenant sleeping. He was unaware of the fire and escorted from the building. The fire was located in the kitchen with extension to the cabinets and adjoining rooms. The fire was extinguished and extensive overhaul was performed. One firefighter was transported to the ER for a leg injury. All New London units responded to the scene. The Sub Base FAST team, Groton Ambulance and the Canteen also assisted at the scene. The fire is under investigation by FM Skau.
