When he was 6, Boston firefighters rushed to his aid after a fire broke out in the Hyde Park home & when he was 7, Boston firefighters returned for a second fire at the home. Now, Marvin A. Alexander said, it’s his turn. “I just remember Boston fire coming in there and taking care of me and my mom in a time of need, It’s something I’ve always wanted to do".
Marvin A. Alexander and 49 other men were sworn in as the newest firefighters on Monday.

Gregg Marsh Not working smoke detectors and carbon dioxide detectors is no ones fault but the stations. They didn't even know where they were.

RIP Mayor Menino.
SAVE THE DATE!
