 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!

Cold Water Rescue Training 12/15/15

Cold water rescue training today with the new recruits at Lake Brandegee. Members took turns practicing with our new cold water rescue suits and equipment.

Department Promotions

Congratulations to both Lt. Tompkins and FF Dan Sawyer (pictured here with Chief Kydd). On Friday December 11th, Lt. Tompkins, a 31 year member of the department was promoted to Battalion Chief. BC Tompkins will take command of Group 1. FF Dan Sawyer, an 8 year member was promoted to Lieutenant and will also be assigned to Group1 as the A-11Lt. Mayor Michael Passero, who had just retired from the fire department after 31 1/2 years of service, swore both officers in at a packed ceremony in the City Hall Council chambers. Good luck and stay safe!

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.

Swearing in of New Recruits

Congratulations to our new recruits. Fire Inspector David Heiney, Fire Fighters Patrick Leonard, Nicholas Brown, and Matthew Avery will complete a brief in house training period and then be assigned to a group.

In addition to the new hires, three additional recruits will be sent to the Fire Academy in February for certification. The recruits are Dakwan Alger, Evan Giesing and Diego Barboza. We wish them all the best of luck.

Mayor Passero


FF Passero has been sworn in as the new Mayor for the City of New London. Congratulations Mike, thank you for your 31 years of service including the many hours you spent on fund raising and scholarship committees. We wish you the very best.
