      What's New at IAFF 892

      Battalion 1, Engine 2, Squad A and Truck 1 responded to Norwich Self Storage on South Golden St. tonight for an activated fire alarm. Crews made entry to the building and noted an odor of something burning. After investigating, a pile of rubbish was found burning within the building. The fire was extinguished and the building ventilated. Norwich FMO is investigating.

      Retired Norwich Fire Department LT. Doug Smith faithfully served the citizens of Norwich for 30 years and is now in need of our support.

      LT. Smith was recently diagnosed with liver and colon cancer and is currently undergoing treatment. His friends, Canterbury Volunteer Fire Company Inc., and fellow Norwich firefighters have organized a benefit pasta supper in his honor on Friday, January 5, 2018 at the Canterbury, CT town hall. See the Facebook Funds for Hope link for more information.

      Starting Tuesday, December 26, 2017 tickets for the benefit pasta dinner will be available for purchase at the City of Norwich Fire Department Headquarters located at 10 North Thames St. Norwich, CT. Tickets are $10 for an adult and $5 for children 12 years old and younger.

      Raffle items, monetary donations, and dinner tickets can also be dropped off and purchased at the Canterbury Volunteer Fire Department - PO Box 293 - Canterbury, CT 06331 - c/o Doug Smith

      On Sunday, October 30, at 5:30 pm,  a full assignment of Engine 2, Squad A, Truck 1, Engine 3 and Battalion 1 was dispatched to 401 North Main Street, Kleemann Service Center, for a reported structure fire. Engine 2 is located a block north of this address and transmitted a working fire from their quarters upon noting a heavy smoke and fire condition presenting from the building. Read More...

      At 1358 hours Norwich Emergency Dispatch received calls for smoke coming from the rear of 132 Franklin Street. This address is a old mill complex located within the heart of downtown. Norwich Fire Department Battalion Chief Merchant arrived at 1402 and transmitted a working fire as white smoke was spotted coming from the second floor windows. As companies searched to find the seat of the fire our Franklin Street Mill pre-incident mutual aid plan was utilized.

      While operating at a stove fire at Summitwoods dr., Norwich dispatch reported to Battalion 1 that they had a fire alarm activation at 66 Franklin Street. Engine 2 and East Great Plains FD were assigned to the fire alarm while companies began to clear the stove fire. 
      While en route, dispatch advised Engine 2 that they were taking calls for smoke from the second floor. Engine 2 arrived on scene and declared a working fire, reporting smoke on the second floor and a fire in the attic area. 
      Two hand lines operated in the building, while firefighters on the roof cut vent holes above the fire.
