BRISTOL — The Bristol Fire Department on Saturday elected new officers at its annual meeting, and installed Brett LaRose as the new chief.
LaRose has been with the department since 1995. He replaces outgoing chief John “Peeker” Heffernan, who served as chief for six years. Heffernan on Tuesday expressed confidence in the department’s choice of LaRose.
“I think he’ll do a great job — he’s been doing hard work, and he deserves credit,” Heffernan said.
