Firefighter Recognized for 35 Years of Service


Lt. William George of the Seekonk Fire Department was recognized for 35 years of service to the town at the October 11 Select Board meeting.

George, a lifelong resident, began his career as a volunteer firefighter in March 1988. He then became a call firefighter later that year. In 1996, George was sworn in as a career firefighter with the department. He was promoted to Lieutenant in 2014.

“Throughout Lt. George’s career, the town has received numerous letters of gratitude and appreciation for his professionalism, compassion, dedication, friendliness, and efficient care,” said Chairman Michael Healy.

“I’ve been fortunate to be able to live in the town of Seekonk,” George said. “To be able to protect the community that I love is amazing. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.”

“You are truly what a public servant is supposed to be,” Healy added.
