Firefighter Olney Retires After 30 Years
It is with mixed emotions and sincere gratitude that the Brattleboro Fire Department is announcing the retirement of Firefighter Allyn Olney. Firefighter Olney joined the Call Force in June of 1986 and was hired to the Career Staff in October of 1987 serving the citizens of Brattleboro for the past 30 years.
Allyn has been a very special employee, a dedicated firefighter, and a role model for all. Allyn received the "Firefighter of the Year Award" in 2004 and a "Meritorious Unit Citation" for his work as part of a group during a very difficult patient extrication at a fatal car accident in 2014. Known for his calm and laid-back demeanor, Firefighter Olney has embraced the role of "Senior Firefighter" taking new employees under his wing, and sharing his knowledge, wisdom, and history with all of us.
Allyn worked his final shift on Sunday, December 30th and he will be missed.
Construction Finished At Both Stations
After almost a year of construction, both Central Station and Station Two are complete. Station two was finished over the summer after the old station was torn down and the new building was built from the ground up. Central Station went through complete renovations as well as an expansion including the addition of three new bays to accommodate larger apparatus. Stop by for a tour of either station to check out whats new!
