Jan 13, 2024: Last night at approximately 5:40 Local 1567's members assigned to Group 3's Engines 2 and 4, Truck 1 and District 1 were dispatched to a multiple family residence on Main Street for a reported structure fire. While enroute members were informed by Litchfield County Dispatch that they were receiving multiple calls. Upon District 1's arrival, there was smoke showing from the side of the building. Members advanced a hose line into the building and extinguished a kitchen fire. Simultaneously, members searched the building for any additional residents, checked for fire extension and prepared for ventilation post extinguishment.
Due to all members being committed to the incident, off duty members were called back along with mutual aid. These firefighters handled another incident that happened during the fire. Simultaneous incidents are occurring at a rate of almost 40 times per month in the city. These incidents tax the already understaffed firefighters and leave the city vulnerable with diminished fire protection.
Your Local 1567 Firefighters cannot predict when incidents will occur but are always ready to provide our highest level of care, service and compassion to the citizens, their friends and family as well as visitors to our city. Safe staffing matters. Your safety matters. Help us to help you. Please come speak at the Board of Public Safety meetings or contact Local 1567 for other ways to help. Thank you all for your support.
