Watertown firefighters will get a second set of turnout gear to wear on shifts when they respond to a fire. The Fire Department will also be getting a new ladder truck. The Town Council approved a purchase that Watertown Fire Chief Bob Quinn hopes will keep members of the Fire Department healthy and safe. Tuesday night, the Council approved $176,000 to be spent on a second set of turnout gear for the Watertown Fire Department. “Cancer is a significant concern for firefighters, and by adding a second set of turnout gear it helps create a healthier, safer environment for members of the Watertown Fire Department,” Quinn said.
