In addition, this year, members of the community can meet the Chief of the department, Christopher Bright, and the Fire Prevention staff, including Deputy Chief Paul Cheever, Captain Mark Wolfgang and Lt. Erin Leary.  Children will be able to view and tour the fire apparatus and an ambulance provided by Cataldo Ambulance Service.

Papa Gino’s, for over 20 years, has been a proud sponsor of Fire Safety Open Houses throughout New England, encouraging  families to learn about fire safety.  Papa Gino’s has sponsored more than 1,800 open houses, donated more than 100,000 pizzas, and distributed more than 1,500,000 activity sheets and educational flyers.  During the month of October, Papa Gino’s provides customers with fire-prevention coloring sheets and certificates for the children.  Fire-safety open houses, during the month of October, are being hosted and sponsored throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Rhode Island.
