 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!

Calls that don't make the headlines,

Many of the calls we respond to on a daily basis will never make headlines in the paper, but it's these types of calls that have a huge impact on someone's life, their families lives and their impression of us as public servants. Last week, A-31 and A-100 responded to a call for a accidental life line activation. When they arrived, they found a frail elderly patient that accidentally set off her alarm. While the ambulance crew obtained a refusal, they noticed the floor was covered in dog feces and urine. The crew cleaned up the feces and mopped her floor before they left the scene. A referral was made to our contacts at the senior center to see if there would be any agencies that could assist her as she has no immediate family. Great work by the members on duty that evening.

MVA's I 95

NLFD has responded to numerous MVA's on both I 95 North and South this past week, one of them being a fatal motorcycle accident. The picture below is from a MVA I 95 North on 6/18 at 2024 hrs. Initial reports were an MVA with ejection and fire. When FD units arrived, the truck was on fire and the victim was in the road. Units remained on the scene until the injured party and debris were removed from the highway.

508 Ocean Ave.

On 6/18/14 at 1524hrs 11,31,25,BC 3 and A-100 responded to a report of a structure fire at this address. When units arrived they found a rear porch that had caught fire from a discarded cigarette. A neighbor kept the fire in check with a garden hose until we arrived. Members checked for extension, no reported injuries.

Police Standoff Nautilus Dr.

A-31 and A-100 were called to the area of Nautilus Dr. and Farmington Ave. to standby while members of the NLPD dealt with an emotionally disturbed female patient that had entered a wooded area possibly armed with a gun. NLPD members had to use a stun gun to end the standoff. The patient may have been trying to provoke the police officers to shoot her(suicide by cop). She was subdued and transported to L&M by A-400 for a psychological evaluation.

Roof Fire United States Coast Guard Academy

On May 30th at 0853 hrs Group 2 responded to the United States Coast Guard Academy for a report of smoke in the clinic building. On arrival, A-21 reported a moderate smoke condition within the building. A-31 and A-100 were added as the FAST team. Workers on scene replacing the roof informed the BC that soldering on the roof caused a small fire which was extinguished quickly. Thermal imagers were used to check for extension. A small area of the roof was opened, no extension found.

Group 3 responds to shooting

On May 29th at 2343 hrs A-41, A-100 and BC 3 responded to the intersections of Alger and Riverview for a reported shooting. On arrival, a male patient was found slumped over a wall suffering from numerous gunshots. A-100 and Medic 11 packaged the patient and transported him to L&M. An article in the New London Day reports the injuries sustained were not life threatening.

Womans Hair Catches Fire

On May 29th 1800hrs, Group 3 responded to the intersection of Eugene O'Neill and State Sts for a report of a female whose hair caught fire. On arrival we found a good Samaritan who had just extinguished a womans hair that was burning with his hands. The female patient informed us she had just had her hair permed and when she went to light her cigarette, her hair caught fire. Visible clumps of hair and a burned odor were present. The patient did not suffer any burns to her face or scalp and refused treatment. Be careful ladies!

440 Ocean Ave. 5/17/14

Group 3 responded to a two car MVA, four injured occupants, all transported to L&M.
