Response to Merrimack Valley Fires

Braintree-Post-1
Although we’ve never responded to fires in the Merrimack Valley area, September’s fires required us to change that. A major gas emergency called for multiple 10-alarm responses at the same time. Around 70 fires sparked in three communities, but we were able to work with other agencies to get a handle on it and stabilize the situation by the following morning.

Braintree’s New Fireboat

Braintree-Fireboat
We are excited to christen the area’s first fireboat, Chester Daiute or “Chet" for short. It was named after a firefighter who served Braintree for eight years before moving to Boston for another 27, including three years with one of Boston’s fireboats. He passed away from lung cancer in 2001 at age 60, but we will continue to honor his memory. Read the full story on The Patriot Ledger by Fred Hanson here.

Supporting Sandy Hook School Victims

When one of our Braintree Firefighters heard this news of the Sandy Hook shooting, he immediately thought of his two children at home and wondered what he could do to make an impact. Robbie Loud decided to create decals that honored the lives lost and to sell them to raise money for that community. We ended up selling over 7000 decals, and were able to send a check of $16,000 to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund from Braintree Firefighters Local 920.

We’re always grateful for the support of our community, and we even had donors from California, Colorado and Japan! Thank you for helping us to make a difference. Check out the articles written about our efforts on Boston CBS Local here and here.
