Rhode Island State Senator Dennis L. Algiere was presented with the League’s Legislator of the Year award on Friday. Senator Algiere, a Republican who represented District 38 including Westerly and Charlestown retired this past year after serving since 1992. He has held numerous leadership positions during his tenure and is a well respected law maker. Senator Algiere continues to be a strong advocate for the Rhode Island Fire & EMS Service and our League. He has been a longtime volunteer firefighter himself with the Westerly Fire Department. He is one of the most active drivers and a top responder each year for WFD.
Members of the Board of the Rhode Island Southern Firefighters League presented the Senator the award on Friday 9/8 at Westerly Fire Headquarters prior to their monthly board meeting as he was unable to attend the President’s dinner in June.
Congratulations Senator and thank you for your passionate dedication to our Fire & EMS services.
