 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!

48 Crystal Ave.
This morning at 0630 the North Station responded to a fire alarm activation at 48 Crystal Avenue. While responding callers reported smoke on the upper floors. All additional companies were assigned to the call. An oven fire on the third floor created a smoke condition on floor 3 and because the fire doors were wedged in the open position, smoke traveled to the upper floors. One child from the fire apartment was transported for evaluation.
Car Fire

On 4/10/15 another car fire was reported at 40 Crystal Ave. Companies found the rear of a vehicle on fire. The cause is under investigation by the Acting FM.
