Electric Boat Corporation Fire Dept Patch Connecticut Patches CTFr

Overview[]

The Electric Boat Fire Department is an industrial fire department serving the General Dynamics - Electric Boat main facility in Groton City, Connecticut. Electric Boat is the source of the majority of the U.S. Navy's underwater capabilities, and handles most of the building at this facility, located on the Thames River. It is less than two miles from the Submarine Base, of which the Electric Boat Fire Department often responds to on mutual aid for fires, hazmat incidents and emergency medical services. It is also across the Thames River from Fort Trumbull in New London, the former site of the Navy's Underwater Sound Lab, which closed in 1996.
