Ward 1 Councillor Fred Capone and Councillor-at-Large Michael Marchese recently presented former Deputy Fire Chief Michael Ragucci with a citation on behalf of the entire City Council. Members of Ragucci’s former crew were also on hand during the presentation. The citation was given in recognition of Ragucci’s 32 years of service to Everett. He had a very distinguished career and was a decorated member of the Everett Fire Department. Ragucci received a Firefighter of the Year Award, among many other accolades, for his response to the gasoline tanker truck fire at Sweetser Circle/Main Street in December 2007.
Councillor Capone stated, “Mike has had a positive impact on our city and the many firefighters who worked and trained under him. He always shared his vast experience and was a true team player who put the safety of his crew and the city above everything. Mike is a quality guy and the City of Everett is a safer community because of his exemplary service.”
