The Select Board on Tuesday named a new fire chief and canceled a fire truck order

WATERFORD — The Select Board on Tuesday named a new fire chief and canceled a fire truck order. By a 5-0 vote, the board appointed former Chief Collin Fucci to take over the department. A 25-year Waterford resident, he looks forward to expanding the department’s volunteer base in order to better serve the town. “I love this community. I love the passion and the people of this community,” he said. “One of the best things that ever happened to me was moving here.” Fucci, 50, joined Waterford Fire in 2001 and served as chief from 2011 until 2015, when he stepped away from the department to spend more time with family. With the support of his wife, Michelle, he rejoined in November 2021 in order to serve alongside two of his three sons, Shea, 19, and Jacob, 17.
