 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!

It's been a busy day so far for the members of local 1522. Since 7 am today, members working the day and night shift have responded to over 30 emergencies, and the night shift is not over yet!

Local 1522 Elections

Local 1522 held their annual election of officers this evening. Lt. Rocco Basilica has been re elected to President and Lt. Jeffery Rheaume has been elected to serve as a member of the Executive Board. Lt. Rheaume will be in charge of the Grievance Committee. Local 1522 would like to wish them both good luck and thank them for their service. 

28 Squire St

At 3:17 am on 8/22/14 a neighbor called in a smoke detector sounding at 28 Squire St. When units arrived, tenants had not yet evacuated the structure. Fire was showing in a second floor window at the rear of the house. Forcible entry was made and a search for occupants found four adults that were still sleeping and unaware of the fire or alarm. The individuals were escorted out of the structure and the fire, which was located in a kitchen, was extinguished. One of the tenants was treated for a hand laceration at the scene and did not require transport to the hospital.

Recovery Operations 8/21/14

New London Firefighters assisted by numerous agencies and a good Samaritans personal boat searched for the body of a male who had jumped off the Southbound side of the Gold Star Bridge. State Police divers recovered the body after recovery dogs and side scan sonar(used by the State Police boat and Mystics Fire boat) came up with hits in the same area. Both recovery dogs, one aboard New Londons boat and the other on the States boat alerted personnel to the same area.

Passing of Brother McGuirk

Firefighter Brendan McGuirk has lost his courageous battle with cancer. Local 1522 would like to offer our condolences to his family and friends. Brendan has always been a positive influence both on the job and throughout his battle with cancer. Brendan will always be remembered for his dedication, courage and positive outlook on life and on the job. He would always offer constructive criticism if he thought something could be done safer or more efficiently.  Rest in peace brother. Funeral arrangements will be announced soon.

177 Nautilus Dr. Unit 39 8/1/14

At 20:04 dispatch received numerous 911 calls for a structure fire at this address. Callers reported that the tenant was still in the apartment. On arrival, flames were visible from the front door and front window. The apartment suffered extensive heat and smoke damage. Nearby apartments also had to be ventilated due to the smoke condition. No injuries were reported.
