Veteran firefighter Michael E. Gingell is officially the new chief of the Harrisville Fire Department. Gingell, the department’s longtime deputy chief, was recently sworn in at a ceremony at the Assembly Theater, where friends, family members and colleagues in the fire service came out to see Gingell’s wife, Brenda, and daughters, Amanda Gingell and Stacey Richard, pin his new badge and collar pins. Gingell, 60, was appointed by the Harrisville Fire District Operating Committee to oversee the department in April. He succeeds former longtime Harrisville Fire Chief Mark St. Pierre, who separated from the position, but remains as the department’s chief emeritus.
