I would like to THANK Nycfire.net members; "signal73", "EMSR2", and "3511", for keeping us updated on the working fire activity in Connecticut.

I've noticed that over the last few months, many cities in Connecticut, just like the NYC area, has been having an INCREASE in the amount of fire activity.

Just like the busy years of the 60s, 70s, and 80s of the FDNY, many Connecticut cities experienced a huge increase in fire activity in the late 70s, the 80s and into the 90s.

These days many blocks and blocks of burned out buildings have been replaced with new businesses and new apartments.
Bridgeport's lower east side, now an example of that with a large Bass Pro Shop building, even a Starbucks Coffee near by.
Gone are the blocks and blocks of burned out buildings in that area.

The population of the Entire State of Connecticut is only about One Third that of New York City. But there are still many closely packed, multifamily wood frame buildings left, not only in Bridgeport, but ALL of the Connecticut cities of this state.

Lately, even the small City of New London, which has a population of only about 26,000 people, is seeing an increase in fire activity.

Will history repeat itself ? Let's hope not.
Too many people got hurt or worse. Plus the loss of personnel belongings.

Also, as we have recently seen, the danger that our firefighters face with the recent LODD of a New Haven Firefighter and another New Haven Firefighter seriously injured.

Please remember; "PRAY FOR THEM AS THEY GO PAST - EVERY RIDE MAY BE THEIR LAST".
