From Harwich Fire: The Harwich Fire Department officially welcomed two new firefighters to the ranks at a swearing in ceremony today at Fire headquarters on Sisson Road. Provisional Firefighters Robert Williams and Brandon Ferro were sworn in as Probationary Firefighters in front of a crowd of fellow firefighters, police officers, town officials, family and friends.

“What a privilege, what a tremendous sense of pride and accomplishment to say, “we serve the people”.

With this statement, Chief Norman Clarke welcomed the two new firefighters to the Harwich Fire Department in his opening remarks. Clarke, a 41 year veteran of the Department told assembled audience about how the bonds created with fellow firefighters will help them through the good and bad times.

In addition to swearing in Williams and Ferro, Firefighters Timothy Drukenbrod and James Sandino were presented with their permanent helmet shields, an indication that they have successfully completed their probationary year as firefighters. Probationary firefighters are issued a black helmet front with an orange insert. This makes it easy to identify them at fire scenes, so that more senior firefighters can keep an eye on them. Once off probation, they are issues a black helmet shield with their company identification on it.

Immediately following the ceremony, there was small gathering with refreshments provided by the Harwich Fire Association.
