Marshfield: Fire Department swears in Richard Pineo as new Lieutenant

The Marshfield Fire Department held a swearing in ceremony Monday night at town hall for the promotion of Firefighter Richard Pineo to the rank of Lieutenant.

Fire Chief Kevin Robinson presided over the proceedings and administered the oath of office.

After the swearing in, Lieutenant Pineo took the opportunity to thank his friends and family for their support.

“I just appreciate everyone coming in and all the support from my wife for my studying multiple times and many transfers through the holidays, and I appreciate all the guys that came in from home too. And thanks to my family for being here,” Pineo said.

The selectman’s chamber was packed with well-wishers for the ceremony.

Pineo has been with the fire department since 2002.
