Marlborough Fire Department welcomes new firefighters


MARLBOROUGH – The Marlborough Fire Department recently appointed three new members to their ranks.

Firefighter/EMT Paramedic Paul Latino transferred to Marlborough from Dudley Fire Department. Firefighter Latino had already been through the Fire Academy and has been assigned to Group 1.

Madison Quinn comes to the Marlborough Fire Department as part of the Department of Defense’s Skillbridge Hero to Hero Program.  She is a commissioned officer in the United States Coast Guard holding the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade. The Hero to Hero program offers  active duty military personnel to get on the job training for eventual appointments in the public safety field. 

Upon her discharge from the Coast Guard, she will become a full time member of the Marlborough Fire Department.

Firefighter Cameron Plank has been appointed to the Marlborough Fire Department and recently did his orientation. Plank is a Marlborough resident and graduated from Marlborough High School in 2016.

FFOPs (Firefighters on Probation) Quinn and Plank started Day 0 of the 10 week Firefighter Recruit Program on May 8. Day 0 is the Recruit program’s orientation day, where they get a tour of the facility, get their lockers and locks issued as well as learning the rules and regulations pertaining to their training.

On May 13, they officially started as class #322 at the Massachusetts Fire Academy, where they will be assigned a recruit number and learn the skills necessary to graduate the Academy with their Firefighter 1 and Firefighter 2 certifications.
