ROCKLAND — Chief Scott Duffey is pleased to announce that Rockland Firefighter Recruit Joshua Landry began his training at the Massachusetts Fire Academy this week.
Firefighter Recruit Landry, age 24, of Rockland, began his first day at the academy in Stow on Monday, where he will be in the Career Recruit Firefighter Training Program for the next 11 weeks.
