Did you hear the sirens coming through town today around 3 PM? If so, you heard the Rochester Fire Department with the help of the Rochester Police Department, and the Mattapoisett police and fire departments escorting our Rochester Olympian home!

Gia Doonan and Woman’s 8 Rowing Teammate Brooke Mooney (World Record Holder) arrived at Mattapoisett park and ride thinking her mom Liza Doonan was just picking her up! What she didn’t know is we planned to bring her home in true celebratory fashion.

With a pitstop in the center of town to honor the American flag that she proudly represented in Tokyo, we were thrilled to be able to be a part of her homecoming!

On Tuesday morning Rochester Firefighters responded to the area of 100 Neck Road for a tandem trailer which had caught fire. The 20 foot trailer appeared to have a mechanical problem with the left rear wheels, which heated up and started to burn. The fire was quickly extinguished and the company arranged for the trailer to be towed away on a flatbed for repairs.

The Daisies/Brownies of Troop 70840 completed their first service project of 2021! They wanted to present our Rochester first responders (and the highway department team!) with some snack supply baskets to help make their long shifts not so long!

Beware throwing ci******es out the window .... could cause this ... a Fire spreading by overpass on Chestnut Hill near underpass
A HUGE thank you to the RFD who worked swiftly to put out a fire at our house. A spark must have traveled out of our fire pit landing in the brush in the background. Amazing how quickly it got out of control. You guys are awesome and we are so very grateful!
Just wanted to send a special thank you to EMTs Jim Holden and Mark Lawrence. It is always scary when you have to call 9-1-1 for your child, but it is even scarier when your child has Autism and is not very high functioning. These gentlemen were absolutely amazing and patient with my kiddo. And they were pretty great with me too, as I might have been more freaked out than the boy lol They did everything one step at a time, they explained everything to him and didn't push him too hard. They kept the sirens off. They played peek-a-boo with their masks. They made the whole experience as smooth as possible for us. I am extremely grateful to you both for yesterday. And Joey learned a new word... "Ambulance". But I told him maybe we could visit, no more rides 😉 Thank you both so very much! 💙
God Bless ALL Police, Fire and EMT’s that have passed!
God Bless ALL Police, Fire and EMT’s that have passed!
Thank you to all the men and ladies that worked so hard to make the Father’s Day Clambake a success once again; this time under such difficult conditions. It was fabulous; drive in, pick up, drive out. So easy, fast and delicious. Hats off to all of you and also to your children that were helping to make it work. You are ALL the best of the best. How fortunate it is that Rochester has such a wonderful group of men and women so devoted. Thank you again and God Bless you and keep you safe.
