Whitman Firefighter Graduates from Officer Training Program
WHITMAN — Chief Timothy Grenno is pleased to announce that Firefighter Nicholas Grasso graduated from the Fire Officer I course at the Barnstable County Fire Rescue Training Academy last week.
The six-day 40-hour training course covered various topics including, effectively managing emergency scene operations, supervising personnel and communicating with the public. The course ended on March 14 with Grasso receiving his Fire Officer I certificate.
“Nick has always been a hard worker and it’s great to see him taking steps to further his career and his knowledge of the fire service industry,” Chief Grenno said.
Grasso, of Hanson, was appointed to be a full-time firefighter with the Whitman Fire Department in September of 2004. He is currently assigned to Group 1 and previously served as the Fire Alarm Superintendent for several years prior to the town removing all fire boxes on telephone poles in Whitman.
Grasso is also a paramedic and holds multiple certifications on various fire service topics.
