At the beginning of November Melrose Fire hired three new FF/Paramedics, they have been assignmed to three different groups and are currently working in Fire Alarm. The three new FF's are Brent Dobbins, Bill Holm, and Alessandro Collarusso. The three of them will be attending the Massachusetts Fire Academy on February, 6th and will go for 10 consecutive weeks. There they will learn the basic fundamentals of firefighting. The skills they will learn will be very beneficial in them becoming good firefigheters and give them a base to expand their knowledge throughout their careers. We wish them in luck and a long and healthy career.
