Please join us tomorrow at the corner of Merrifield Ave and Bigelow Ave where the Town of Watertown will be dedicating the corner to Firefighter Joseph Toscano.

The ceremony will take place at 10am. @7news @wbztv @wcvb5 @jadianntv @alainapinto #lodd #watertownfire #neverforget
Help us help you. When there’s a fire, every second counts. Also remember to clear your furnace and dryer vents. Carbon Monoxide can be deadly.
Yesterday Captain R. Nicholson was invited to the Hosmer School 3rd Grade classrooms as a mystery reader. We look forward to returning to these same classes in the Spring to continue our fire education efforts as part of the S.A.F.E. Program.
As a friendly reminder, this weekend when you spring your clocks ahead remember to change the batteries in your smoke and CO alarms. If your alarms are older than 10 years old it’s time for a replacement.
