 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!

Units operating at a dorm on the Connecticut College Campus. Companies found 2nd floor charged with smoke from a defective washer. A mutual aid engine from Waterford was requested due to A-31 and A-11 being tied up at other incidents. A-25 ventilated the building as students were forced out into the cold weather.
