Medal of Honor

Boston Fire Department
FF Paul J. Cahill
FF Warren J. Payne
Trapped in restaurant grease fire

Fire Firefighter Warren Payne served with distinction in the Boston Fire Department for 23 years before his life was cut short as he battled a deadly restaurant fire. He was a loving son, brother, and father of two. Each day, his family experiences the painful loss of Firefighter Payne.

Firefighter Paul Cahill also worked for the Boston Fire Department serving the public for 15 years in a job he loved. Sadly, he also lost his life fighting the same restaurant fire that claimed Firefighter Payne. Cahill left behind his wife Anne and their three children when he didn't return home from his last call.

The dangers and responsibilities inherent in the job of a firefighter were always foremost in the minds of these men, though they proudly and without hesitation answered the bell to protect the citizens of their city.

Medal of Valor
Brookline Fire Department
Lt. Paul R. Pender
Acting Lt. Gerald J. Murphy
FF Frederick C. Johnston
Rescued FF trapped in building under collapse of second floor ceiling
On April 16, the Brookline Fire Department responded to a building fire on Harrison Street, where a resident who uses a wheelchair was reported trapped on the second floor. Firefighters advanced hose lines and began searching the second floor. The situation quickly went from bad to worse, and a back draft collapsed the second story ceilings. Firefighter Stephen Nelson was knocked down, lost his face piece and was partially buried beneath debris. Acting Lieutenant Gerald Murphy had been blown down the stairs by the back draft. Even so, he immediately crawled up the stairs and advanced into the fire. Upon hearing of their trapped comrade, Lieutenant Paul Pender and Firefighter Frederick Johnston rushed up the stairs without hesitation or concern for their own safety. The three men located Firefighter Nelson and brought him to safety.
Fall River Fire Department

Lt. Daniel Santry
Firefighter George Eonas
Responding to a structure fire at housing, rescued 2 children on 2 nd floor

(See description of Fall River Group Award)

On October 25, 2007, the Fall River Fire Department responded to a structure fire at a local housing development. Although the efforts were successful due to the cohesiveness of a team effort, the courage and tenacity of Lieutenant Michael Cabral to enter the burning building for a second time to rescue the trapped child deserves special recognition. Without consideration for his own safety, Lieutenant Cabral entered the building several times without the protection of an attack line. The time that it would have taken to get the line to the bedroom was too long, and his primary concern was saving the lives of these two children. He knew that every second was critical. Lt. Cabral showed extreme bravery as he sought and found two children in total darkness, under high heat, and pressing fire conditions.

Milton Fire Department

FF Antonio PickensStruck by drunken driver while assisting at a car accident

Antonio "Tony" Pickens is a proud twelve-year veteran of the Milton Fire Department. On January 30, 2007, he was first to respond to a motor vehicle accident across the street from the fire station. As Firefighter Pickens assisted the accident victim, he was, himself, struck by drunk driver. Firefighter Pickens suffered massive trauma to his body and head and has endured a year and a half of intense therapy.

Firefighters from across the country have come to the aid of their injured brother and his family to help with medical expenses and equipment to outfit his home so Tony can continue his rehabilitation at home.

Firefighters take to heart the well being of others, very often risking their own lives while doing so. It was in this noble tradition that Antonio Pickens responded to help someone and was critically injured while doing so.

Saugus Fire Department

FF William Cross III
Captain Thomas R. Nolan
Saved double amputee

(See summary of Group Award for Saugus Fire)

On April 24, 2008, a horrific fire in a Saugus three-decker apartment building trapped two handicapped residents on upper floors.

Captain Thomas Nolan arrived on the scene without turnout gear, yet he raced to the second floor to rescue a double amputee woman trapped there. She had no wheelchair, so he began dragging her out but fire and smoke forced them back to the bedroom. He sounded a mayday for a victim and a fire officer trapped in the burning building.

That's when Firefighter William Cross, off duty, dressed only in a T-shirt and shorts, without hesitation climbed the ladder and entered the bedroom where Capt. Nolan and the female victim were trapped. Firefighter Cross then helped lift the victim through the window to waiting firefighters who carried both the victim and Captain Nolan down the ladder to safety.

Later, the victim reported that when Captain Nolan covered her with a blanket in the burning bedroom, she told him, "Leave me here and get yourself out," but Captain Nolan calmly reassured her that, they would both getting out alive. And they did.

Boston Fire Department

FF Leamon R. MillerSaved 2 year old through a ladder rescue from 3rd floor
On November 12 th, a fast moving fire had engulfed all floors of a three-decker home on Blue Hill Avenue. When firefighter arrived on the scene, he observed heavy fire conditions on all three floors. He donned his mask, entered the building and fought through the extreme heat and smoke to the third floor. While searching the third floor, Firefighter Miller heard a faint cry, and continued his search at great personal risk until he found a two-year-old child perched on top of a bed. Firefighter Miller immediately removed his facemask and placed it over the child's mouth. He carried the child to the window, where firefighters from Ladder Company 6 were waiting. Firefighter Miller passed the child through the window so that she could be brought to safety. Thanks to Leamon Miller's courage, professionalism and determination, this child was saved from more serious injuries and perhaps even death.

Falmouth Fire Department

FF Christopher BrownFF's attempted rescue of victim in attic without ventilation
On May 17, the Falmouth Fire Rescue Department responded to a fire with the possibility of a construction worker trapped in the attic. While his partner on the engine company was securing a water source and attempting to advance a line, Firefighter Brown entered the house and moved toward the attic to evaluate conditions and initiate a rescue attempt. Without delay, faced by conditions viewed as untenable, without the assistance of ventilation, a hose line or a partner, FF Brown made the decision to enter the attic to attempt a rescue. With superheated temperatures, zero visibility with smoke banking down to the second floor, Firefighter Brown followed the workers' hose line to the opposite side of the attic, locating the victim. Firefighter Brown proceeded to navigate the unconscious victim back to the attic hatch opening and then to fellow firefighters, who assisted in lowering the victim from the second floor and out of the fire building.

Hull Fire Department

Deputy Chief Christopher Russo
FF John "Jay" King
Saved 5 kayakers from drowning

Firefighters put their lives at risk every time they report for duty. Occasionally an incident is so unusually dangerous the public takes notice of the danger and heroism that is "all in a day's work" for a firefighter. Such an incident occurred in Hull on the second of September 2007 when Firefighter John Jay King responded to the call at the Weir River Bridge. Onlookers told him that 5 kayakers had been swept into the culvert by the churning water, and one was close to drowning. Without regard for his personal safety, Firefighter King, without a safety line or personal floatation device, jumped into the river to begin the rescue.

The on duty shift of the Hull fire department arrived under the command of acting Deputy Chief Christopher J. Russo and deployed ladders and safety ropes. Deputy Russo directed the rescue and reassured those in danger they would all be rescued. Meanwhile, Firefighter King was securing a young woman who was trapped against the sluiceway gate. The rushing tide was rising quickly, and soon there would be no breathing room inside the culvert. Deputy Chief Russo passed flotation devices to the kayakers trapped in the culvert and helped rescue them all. Firefighter King, the first man on the scene, was the last one to leave his position. Deputy Fire Chief Russo and Firefighter King saved the lives of five people that day and millions on television stations later saw the rescue across the country.

Swampscott Fire Department

FF Robert F. RandallCarried women out of burning house

On the night of June 26, the Swampscott Fire Department was called to a house fire on Forest Avenue. The police officers on the scene told firefighter Robert Randall that an elderly woman, Barbara Townsend, was trapped in the rear of the building. The heat and smoke were so intense that police could not stand in front of the building. Despite the intense conditions, Firefighter Randall entered the home and crawled through the smoke and darkness. He conducted the search on his stomach, fighting his way toward the back of the house where the entrapped woman was located. Firefighter Randall immediately removed his mask and gave the woman air to breathe. With just moments to spare, he picked up Barbara Townsend and using his body to protect her from the extreme heat, he rushed for the door. Barbara Townsend's granddaughter summed it up best in a handmade card she sent to Firefighter Randall: "You risked your life in order to save someone you did not even know".

Rescued 25 people from a 5 story building fire, losing one life in extreme cold and wind

At 11:45 p.m. on December 14, 2007 the temperature was freezing and a steady 16 mile-per-hour wind made conditions even more extreme. Firefighter Marc Nicastro and three members of Engine 4 responded to a report of a smoke detector sounding at a 27-unit apartment complex on Middle Street. No one had reported seeing any smoke or fire.

Engine 4 discovered fire in a bottom floor apartment, and it quickly spread through the entire building. Most of the residents had ignored the alarm and were still in their apartments. Search and rescue operations were started immediately.

As their air bottles were emptying and firefighters were being ordered out, a report came of a man trapped in his 3 rd floor apartment. Fire in the floor, walls and ceiling of the 3 rd floor hallway made an interior rescue impossible.

Firefighter Nicastro climbed a 35-foot ladder to the window where the victim was last seen calling for help. He reached inside and grabbed the unconscious man and pulled him to the window but was unable to move him. Firefighter Nicastro then went through the window, but still could not move the man and was almost trapped himself. Soon after, the entire building collapsed. The 8-alarm fire devastated a large part of a city block and took one life. It was the largest fire to strike the community in over 30 years.

Thanks to the heroism of Group 2, working against the odds and the elements, 20 lives were saved. The synagogue was destroyed, the library saved but there was significant extension of fire.

Responded to a women trapped in a folding machine at a commercial laundry

It was a hot day in June, when the Hyannis Fire-Rescue received a 911 call reporting a female trapped in a machine at the All Seasons Laundry. The ambulance and heavy rescue crews quickly responded. The EMT's and paramedics began emergency medical care to the patient, while simultaneously ensuring that the machine was locked out and directing all non-fire personnel away from the rescue area.

Due to a language barrier, the efforts to control the scene were initially very difficult. Lieutenant Knowlton and his crew of Lieutenants Rex and Kenny and Firefighter Dardia launched the rescue operation. They found the victim's left arm entangled in a large commercial folding machine.

The woman's arm was pinned between two rollers and appeared to be fractured in numerous places. The men worked to carefully lift the patient, relieving stress and comforting her while master mechanics Richard Randall and David Scott assisted with the extrication operations.

Rescued two children at multifamily structure fire

On October 25, 2007, the Fall River Fire Department responded to a fire at a local housing development. Upon arrival, smoke was showing from the second floor and occupants reported two children trapped in the bedroom adjacent to the room on fire. Lieutenant Glen Golden stretched an attack line for Lt. Michael Cabral to make his way to the second floor to conduct a search for the children. He encountered heat and heavy smoke with no visibility but made his way into the bedroom and began a thorough search for the victims. Within a short time, he found the first, a three-year-old boy, and swiftly brought him to Lt. Dan Gerling who revived the unconscious child with CPR. Lt. Cabral then re-entered the building and made a second rescue finding a nine-year-old girl wedged between the wall and the box spring. Lt. David Defaria carried the girl outside and the young girl was given CPR by Aide Jennings. The actions of Lt. David Defaria, Lt. Daniel Gerling, Firefighter Glen Golden, and Chief's Aide Paul Jennings, all displayed a remarkable ability to work together, which inevitably lead to saving the lives of two young children.

Propane gas tank exploded in oven female victim recovered in bedroom

On January 23, 2008, the Rockland Fire Department responds to a Centre Avenue house fire. Lt. Donald Hussey and firefighters Tom Heaney and Mike Tracy were the first on the scene and entered the house through a rear kitchen door. Seconds later, a ball of fire filled the room. A propane bottle placed in the oven exploded engulfing Lt. Hussey and FF Heaney in flames and trapping FF Tracy in the bathroom. With Lt. Hussey and FF Heaney attacking the fire with a hose line, FF Tracy was able to jump out a window to avoid the flames. The firefighters then regrouped and continued to fight the fire. They went back into house where they found an unconscious victim in the upstairs bedroom, and pulled her safely from the building. Paramedics began life saving procedures and transported her to the Brockton hospital. Three of the firefighters were also taken in for evaluation and released.

Three decker building fire, rescued two victims including one disabled on the second floor, through a broken window and one fire captain.

On April 24, 2008, Firefighter Jeff Moses was off duty when he smelled smoke nearby. He investigated and discovered a fire on the 2nd floor of a three-decker home. He called in the fire, and then began alerting and evacuating residents. One resident, suffering from a traumatic brain injury and diminished capacity, kept re-entering the building, until Firefighter Moses removed him and placed him safely in the care of neighbors. This move likely saved the man's life. Captain Tom Nolan travelling nearby, heard the alarm and rushed to the scene less than a block away. He forced entry to the second floor, at which time the windows blew in and wind drove the fire through the apartment.

Captain Nolan then passed the fire and searched for the handicapped female. Once he discovered the victim, he attempted to drag her down the hallway but due to the rapidly deteriorating fire conditions, needed to drag her back to the bedroom and declared a mayday over his radio. Captain Donald Shea received the MAYDAY, and focused on rescuing Captain Nolan and the victim. Drastically undermanned, before mutual aid arrived, he enlisted the aid of bystanders to deploy ladders to the trapped firefighter and victim. Scrambling up a hastily thrown ladder, he saw that Captain Nolan was suffering from smoke inhalation and exhaustion and he immediately requested help.

With the assistance of Firefighter Brian O'Neil and Lt. Kevin McDermott, on a second ladder, the woman was pulled through the window, followed by Firefighters William Cross, O'Neil and Captain Nolan. A dramatic rescue like this is made not by any one individual, but as a result of a coordinated effort executed by all of the Saugus firefighters who operated at that alarm. Three lives were saved that day-those of a person on the third floor with a brain injury, a person on the second floor who is a double amputee, and Captain Nolan. It should also be noted that a second 3-alarm fire was also burning in Saugus at the same time.

Responded to a worker trapped under a slab of concrete

On November 2, 2007, dispatch received a call for medical assistance at an excavation site. Upon arrival, Captain Donald Jasmin and Captain James Bertram found that the situation was far worse than they had feared.

The victim was trapped three feet deep, in a seated position, pinned against the wall of an excavation, under a one-and-a-half ton concrete slab. Paramedics immediately began patient assessment, while the first arriving Engine Company began the extrication, using all tools at their disposal - including air bags, Jaws of Life, and even hand digging to allow the victim to breathe.

After working for an hour and a half, the victim was extricated and transported by med-flight to Boston for care and treatment.

As a result of the professional work, experience and determination to succeed, the victim received only non-life threatening injuries and was released a few days after the event.

Fire Marshal's Award

James ShannonPresident and CEO of the National Fire Protection Association

Smoking is the leading cause of fatal fires nationally and here in Massachusetts. Reacting to the tragic fire that killed six members of the Kearney-O'Neill family in his district, former Congressman Joseph Moakley launched an effort to pass federal fire-safe cigarette legislation in the 1970s and 80s as a way to reduce these horrible tragedies.

A former congressional colleague of his, James M. Shannon, now president of the National Fire Protection Association, took up that cause and coordinated the work of the Coalition for Fire Safe Cigarettes™.

The Coalition was instrumental in passage of the Fire Safe Cigarette law here in Massachusetts and in 34 other states. Soon more than 80% of the nation's people will be protected by similar legislation. This will have an impact on reducing the number of people who die in fires in the Commonwealth each year. Congressman Moakley would be proud.

Board of Directors, Massachusetts Fallen Firefighters Memorial

For decades the Massachusetts Fire Service dreamed of having a Memorial, a place honoring the courage and bravery of our fallen firefighters and all firefighters who have given a lifetime of service. In 2007 this dream was realized after years of work by a dedicated group of volunteers who created the Fallen Firefighters Memorial Committee.

In Ashburton Park on the grounds of the State House stands a beautiful memorial, a fitting tribute to the men and women of the fire service. We recently recognized the first anniversary of the memorial and during the past year so many people visit and use the memorial in the way we all dreamed they would..

Tanker truck explosion, two three story wood buildings and 51 motor vehicles

One year ago this week, a tanker truck exploded at the Sweetser Circle Rotary in Everett. A fully loaded gasoline tanker overturned, struck a guardrail and spilled 9,000 gallons of gasoline down a steep embankment.

The explosion that followed the accident resulted in a river of fire flowing into three very congested residential areas. The first fire companies to arrive found extremely hazardous conditions, including three fully involved occupied multi-family dwellings and fifty cars and the tanker on fire.

At the center of this area was a heavily exposed 78-unit, 6-story elderly apartment dwelling with 84 residents.

In spite of the many challenges, the rapidly spreading fire, the heavy smoke and the winter weather conditions, the officers and firefighters of the Everett Fire Department who responded to this dangerous and chaotic scene affected a well-coordinated, aggressive attack on the exposure fires and were able to safely evacuate all involved.

Scroll of Honor

The scroll of honor recognizes all the fire service personnel who have been deployed in Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan) and Operation Iraqi Freedom since September 2001.

Some have seen multiple tours of duty at great personal sacrifice to them and their families. We honor these firefighters who serve and protect us at home, and overseas.
