 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!

2nd Alarm Fire: 70 Farmington Ave

On Monday morning 02/11/2019 the NLFD responded to a report of smoke in the building in 70 Farmington Ave, The Farmington Arms apartments. On arrival, crews found flames coming from two windows on the 4th floor. A second alarm was called due to the large number of occupancies in the apartments that needed help exiting the building. The NLFD had the fire knocked down under 15 minutes from arrival.
