On Friday, May 17, 2019, Legoland Discovery Center celebrated the Somerville Fire Department’s women firefighters. Four of Somerville’s five women firefighters represented the department and spoke about their careers in the fire service and their love for their job. They also presented fire safety tips to the children in attendance.
Women who are residents of Somerville and interested in a career with the Somerville Fire Department are encouraged to contact Jennifer Mancia, City of Somerville Personnel Department at 617-625-6600 x3304.
