JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

This week for my section I have some photos from the Boston Public Garden that I took on June 30th with my wife and my daughter. Who knows where Johnny G will end up next.

I am always looking for photos of old Stoneham (Mass) apparatus, incidents or members for my personal collection if anyone can help. A digital scan is perfectly fine, I don't need an original as long as the scan is big enough to print out. I also can scan photos, slides and negatives and then give them back to you if that is easier. CLICK FOR EMAIL.





On July 9th, Stoneham (Mass) Fire welcomed our newest member Miles Plante. Miles was officially sworn into the department ranks by Town Clerk Maria Sagarino. After working days for 2 weeks to familiarize himself with the department, Miles will head off to the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy to be certified as Firefighter I and II.

CURRENT SCENES





A T.T. unit carrying liquified Nitrogen was recovered off of I95 South in the Westbrook area of CT Friday Morning (7/6) after a fire. As the disabled trailer was being towed back to a off loading facility in the Town of Franklin Ct off of Route 32 at the Norwich town line. For reasons unknown by the photographer, once again, the trailer incited major traffic delays as it fell off the recovery vehicle. A large leak ensued, and as they say, the rest is history. The Franklin Fire Dept, with M/A from Yantic, and Laurel Hill,utilized large caliber master streams to dissipate the cloud, and get the road re-opened before Fridays rush hour.
