Members of the Bristol Volunteer Fire Department paid homage to their fallen brethren last weekend during Firefighter’s Memorial Sunday ceremonies. It was also an historic occasion for Firefighter’s Memorial and Welfare Committee General Chairman Jane E. Dwyer, who became the first female chief marshal of the annual Fireman’s Parade. “This was quite an honor,” she said. “I’m so proud to a member of this department.” Ms. Dwyer has been a member of the Bristol Fire Department for nearly 27 years. She joined the Division of Rescue in 1990, and was voted into the Dreadnaught Hook, Ladder, and Hose Co. #1 in 1992 as Bristol’s first female firefighter. She became a Life Member of the Dreadnaught Hook, Ladder, & Hose Company in 2012, and joined the Firefighter’s Memorial and Welfare Committee in 2013.
