New Firefighters Welcomed



At the Newport Fire Department’s Badge Pinning Ceremony on Wednesday, Jan. 29, an overflow crowd of family and friends welcomed five new firefighters to the department. Having completed their six-month probationary period, badges and duty helmets were presented to Evan Katz, Gary Largess, Gregg Morash, David Sarro, and Benjamin Welch as they were formally inducted into the firefighting ranks. Pictured above, Deputy Chief Brian Dugan hands Largess his new helmet as Fire Chief Peter Connerton looks on.
