 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!

Blizzard of 2015


Members responded to numerous calls during the recent blizzard. Some of the unplowed streets were a challenge for both our personnel and equipment. Through the EOC, a coordinated response with public works and the fire department helped manage the situation. Companies responded to 40 calls during the storm. Another great job by the members of Local 1522.

Passing of Retired Firefighter John Clark

It is with deepest regret Local 1522 announces the passing of Retired Firefighter John Clark. John came on the job in 1984 and retired in 2001. At John's request, there are no services being planned at this time. Our condolences to his family.

Rest in peace John.

I 95 South MVA

On 1/18/15 Group 1 responded to an MVA on I 95 South near the Williams St. off ramp. All on duty units responded to the scene where they found 22 vehicles involved with 15 injuries, 2 being serious. Ambulances from Waterford, Groton, Mystic River and the Sub Base were called to the scene. Picture below provided by Chief Kydd.

42 1/2 Jefferson Ave.

At 20:39 hours, a fire was reported at 42 1/2 Jefferson Ave. On arrival found heavy fire coming from the front of the structure. Residents next door reported that one female may have been trapped in the building. A primary and secondary search were completed with no occupants found. The tenant had smelled smoke and exited the building prior to our arrival. Companies made a quick knockdown but remained on scene for extensive overhaul. All New London units responded to the scene with the help of the Sub Base "FAST" team.

Two Car MVA 1/16/15

Group 3 responded to Bank and Spring for a two car MVA with two minor injuries. A-11, A-100, A-25 and a mutual aid ambulance from WTFD (W-100) responded to the scene. A-400 was on another call.

Xavier Getting Dirty

This years New London High School Intern has taken a liking to the fire service. Xavier is a senior at New London High School and chose to do his intern project with the New London Firefighters. Xavier completed his internship but has really become interested in the work we do. Xavier has spent time in all three firehouses and has also ridden along with the fire marshals office. Xavier has been issued his own set of gear and takes turns riding on A-11 or A-100 out of Headquarters. Tonight Xavier was first due to the structure fire at 42 1/2 Jefferson Ave. Xavier assisted the on duty crews by spreading sand on the ice that quickly formed from extinguishing the fire. Below is a picture of Xavier helping clean the equipment after getiing back to the station. Great job Xavier!
