• Firehouse Friday: Middleborough Fire Department

    Updated:

    First responders are never really off duty.  Fortunately, when a crisis situation arose on a Massachusetts school trip to Europe, Middleborough Fire Chief Lance Benjamino was able to use his first responder skills to coordinate the rescue. Chief Benjamino was able to use training he had learned while on the job to help the student who had fallen down the mountain.Thanks to the support and assistance from their tour guide, mountain rescue, and school faculty, there is a happy ending. 

    Thank you to all first responders for the work you do, on and off duty, to help keep the community safe!
