The program will be presented by David Laurie, former fire chief, who was with the department for 43 years. He is a lifetime member of the Plainville Fire Company.

In addition to an historical overview, he plans to focus on the evolution of the fire alarm system and highlight some of the more memorable fires in Plainville’s history.
