JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

This week for my section, a few photos from last week. One photo is from the swearing in of Stoneham's newest firefighter, Mike Paone. And the rest are from a water/dive rescue training event held in Saugus in which the Stoneham Fire/Police Dive Team participated. 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 June 28th, Stoneham Mass swore in Mike Paone as the newest firefighter. The U.S. Marine Corps veteran begins recruit training on Monday July 8th.


Stoneham Fire/Police Divers joined Saugus Fire, Lynn Fire, DCR Lifeguards and Armstrong Ambulance in a 4 day water/dive rescue training event at Breakheart Reservation in Saugus.
