Fire Chief T. Andrew Reardon will be disciplined by the town after he was cited for using his phone just before causing a four-vehicle crash in Hanover that sent the chief and three others to the hospital.
Town Administrator Peter Morin said Thursday that he and the chief had discussed and agreed upon proposed disciplinary action related to the crash. Morin would not say what the plan included, describing it as a private personnel matter.
(Reardon) acknowledges the serious nature of the accident and that as fire chief he is held to a high standard of conduct,” Morin said in a statement. “I have informed him of my
intentions to recommend disciplinary action commensurate with his failure to meet those standards. The chief has informed me that he agrees with my recommendation and will not exercise his right to a hearing or to otherwise appeal.”
