Newly appointed East Providence Fire Chief Glenn J. Quick welcomed 11 members of his department into new positions as part of a promotion ceremony held on Tuesday. Two battalion chiefs, three captains, four lieutenants and the city's first rescue lieutenant were officially sworn in to the new posts.
Quick was also officially promoted into his new position as chief at the ceremony.
"All of you possess the bravery and commitment that it takes to be a member of the fire service," East Providence Mayor Bob Dasilva said. "Each day when you walk into your firehouse you do it not knowing what your tour will bring."
