The Watertown Fire Department had a welcome announcement for its newest member:
Please join us in congratulating Firefighter Olivia Winsor who was sworn in today as Watertown’s newest Firefighter/ Paramedic. Firefighter Winsor will work two weeks of days as an orientation before being assigned to a shift.
