 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
Fill the Boot! August Friday's 1-3pm

The Fill the Boot campaign was started in 1954 and has raised over $558 million from generous donations. We hope to see you there!

1522 Honors Kent Reyes

New London FD would like to thank its member Kent Reyes for 32 years of proud service to both the Fire Department and to the local community. Kent retired this month and his daily presence and spirit will be greatly missed on the job. Thanks for everything Kent!

High Angle Training Group 3

The I-95 Southbound Bridge project started in mid April. This project could pose numerous unique challenges for the members of the New London Fire Department. A previous incident(9/1/2015) where a "Snooper Truck" failed below the surface of the bridge was handled with A-35 on the Groton side. If one of these trucks should fail over the water or someone becomes injured on a work platform, members are practicing with high angle rescue techniques should we need to lower one of our firefighters over the side. This rehab process for both the South and Northbound spans will be ongoing for the next 5 years. Group 3 working with the equipment on 5/25/17.
