On a warm hazy morning on September 11th, 2023, members of the Nichols Fire Department take the time to remember those who have fallen on that day 22 years ago. The commemoration began with the rolling out of the trucks at 9:45, the lowering of the station flag at half-mast at 10:06, a one-minute siren and three sets of five bells at 9:59 to remember the collapse of the South Tower and a one-minute siren and three sets of five bells to remember the collapse of the North Tower. The commemoration concluded with the station flag being raised and the presentation of the wreath near the flagpole. A salute to the wreath and a one-minute stay at attention concluded the memorial.

The Parade Squad,  led by LT Detuzzi brought home the “best appearing apparatus ” trophy at the Bridgewater Parade held August 18, 2023. MANY members spent hours scrubbing, polishing and waxing even during the actual parade just prior to the “judging station”. This exercise encourages members to participate in “extra’ activities that spawns comradery and pride inthe Nichols Fire Department. Congrats to all!

The CT Fire Academy in collaboration with the UCONN Fire Department and Residential Life has developed a Lithium-ion battery PSA. This PSA focuses on the pressing national concern surrounding Lithium-ion batteries. In 2021, New York City alone witnessed the alarming response to 104 fires ignited by these batteries, causing 79 injuries and tragically claiming the lives of four individuals.  Together, we can raise awareness and promote safer practices regarding Lithium-ion batteries. Stay informed, stay safe!
