Steep stairs, balloon construction, concealed spaces, no fire stops between floors, and old electric are just some of the challenges in historic homes that Thomaston Fire Chief Mikial Mazzeo will discuss on June 21, at 7 p.m., the first talk of the season for the Thomaston Historical Society.
Chief Mazzeo’s presentation will offer input for fire safety and prevention for those buying or restoring old homes, backed up with experiences and stories.
Mazzeo has more than 34 years in the fire service and has been with the Thomaston Fire Department since 1991, rising through the ranks and becoming Fire Chief in 2016. He is also the town’s Forest Fire Warden and a Paramedic. In addition, he has been a career firefighter for Rockland Fire Department since 1992 and has been an Assistant Fire Chief there for 17 years.
Join the Historical Society on June 21, in the hall on the lower level of the Federated Church (8 Hyler St.). The entrance is from the parking lot (easy access) behind the church, accessible off of Hyler Street or Dunn Street.
A brief historical society annual membership meeting will take place before the talk.
