This past Sunday, June 9th, the City of Everett gathered at the Firefighters Memorial Monument on the corner of Elm and Ferry Streets in memorial of firefighters Richard Colarusso, Joseph O’Hearn, and Angelo Giangregorio. Members of the community, Fire Department Personnel and the EFD Honor Guard paid tribute to both this year’s honorees, as well as all of those firefighters who are no longer with us.
Speakers at the service included Mayor Carlo DeMaria, Matt Laidlaw, Director of Communications for State Senator Sal DiDomenico, State Representative Wayne Matewsky, and Chaplin of the Everett Fire Department Reverend Tom Coots.
The speakers expressed their appreciation and gratitude to both the fallen heroes and those who currently serve and protect the residents of Everett.
“It is important to always remember and acknowledge the sacrifice and dedication firefighters display each and everyday,” states Mayor DeMaria, “I am extremely proud and grateful not only as Mayor, but as a resident of Everett of the men and women whose goal is to always protect our City.”
