Warren Fire & Rescue have recently been able to replace rescue trucks that have spent more time in the shop than on the road. Chief Al Galinelli requested funds approved by voters on an Emergency basis to replace the rescues. The Town Council approved his request and purchased Rescue 1.
This past year, voters approved $200,000 to purchase a second new Rescue apparatus, which allowed Chief Galinelli to negotiate with Specialty Vehicles (Attleboro, MA). In return for $170,000 and the trade in of the old, problematic rescues, Warren was able to receive Rescue 2 along with new LUCA automatic CPR machines (normally $13,000 each) for both Rescue 1 and Rescue 2.
Recent years have been tough on rescue crews, as the equipment has been a continual source of frustration. But with two new trucks, each identically outfitted with supplies and state-of-the-art computers and GPS systems, the department’s become much more efficient.
Warren Rescue Station is located on the corner of Miller Street and Narragansett Way. The rescue station has approximately 60 volunteer members and is commanded by Warren Fire Chief Alexander Galinelli. It houses one of two rescue vehicles that is on call 24 hours a day. The Warren rescue team responds to all 911 calls and confirmed fires.
