New trainees halfway through firefighter training program


Six people are about halfway through the basic firefighter training program. Ben Madden, Hannah Butler, Carrie Burke, Shane Clemens, Tyler Brown, and Cameron Thorpe started the program on June 25, and are expected to join the Boxford Fire Department as call firefighters after the program ends on July 30. “We’re looking forward to having a few new members,” said Fire Chief Kerry Stickney. Madden is the son of Boxford Deputy Chief Michael Madden, and Thorpe is the son of Captain Jim Thorpe of the Massport Fire Department.
