 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!

What's New at IAFF 1522
Fire at The Day Paper 4/22/14

At 6:21pm on 4/22/14 Group 2 responded to a fire alarm activation at 47 Eugene O'Neill Dr (The Day) for a fire alarm activation. The fire alarm panel showed sprinkler activation and members encountered a hallway filled with smoke. A fire was located on the mezzanine level. BC Sargent added the remaining on duty units and also requested the Sub Base FAST Team. Members knocked the fire down quickly and prevented substantial property damage by using salvage covers to protect equipment within the building. FM Darrow was called in to investigate the suspicious fire. Great job by Group 2 members, no injuries reported. The building was evacuated until ventilation and overhaul were completed. The following pictures were taken at the scene.

Working Fire 655 Broad St. 3/22/14

Group 2 responded to 655 Broad St this morning(0508hrs) for a reported structure fire. On arrival they found fire coming from a basement window. A working fire was transmitted by BC Sargent and a request was made for the Sub Base FAST team. Members made a quick knock down and prevented any extension to the upper floors. Great work again by the members of Local 1522. This fire is a prime example of our earlier post regarding smoke detectors. The residents were sleeping on the first floor at the time of this fire and woke up to a smoke detector sounding. Early detection by their smoke detector helped prevent possible fatalities or injuries from smoke inhalation. Photo by Lt. Rheaume.

Smoke Detectors Save Lives if Used Properly

At a recent fire, this picture was taken of a smoke detector without a battery. Notice the black soot and discoloration to the unit. It was the only detector in the apartment. Two individuals were treated for smoke inhalation and unnecessary damage was done to a kitchen because detection was delayed. Please don't let this happen to you. If you have a detector that you feel is a nuisance(goes off when you cook or take showers), call your local fire department and they can assist you with re-locating the detector. DO NOT REMOVE THE BATTERY!!!!!! You can reach our Fire Marshals office at 860-447-5294 and they will be happy to assist you. You should also have a carbon monoxide detector installed as well.


St. Pat's Day Parade 2014

The New London Firefighters Pipes and Drums march on Bank St. this past weekend in the 2014 St. Patrick's Day Parade. The Band participates in over 50 events throughout the year. Practice is held every Thursday night at one of the firehouses. A great deal of dedication is required and all band members have to secure their own time off for events. Great job again by all.
