Marblehead Firefighters Awarded Medal of Valor

November 30, 2015


Chief Jason Gilliland announced on Monday, November 23, 2015 that firefighters Eric Ridge and Mark Borowski, along with Acting Lieutenant Grant Glavin, were given the Medal of Valor for an incident that occurred in March.

The three members of the Marblehead Fire Department were in the first fire engine to arrive at a fire scene on Sewall Street. The crew went into the burning building and rescued a resident.

Governor Baker made the award to forty-three firefighters around the state and praised the men and women as examples of all firefighters’ commitment to saving the public and for their “instinct” to help others,” often at great risk to themselves.”1
