Swampscott swears in five firefighters — finally

SWAMPSCOTT — Five firefighters administered their oath Wednesday evening, some having been on the job for a number of years.

A "collection of bad luck" led to a four-year delay in swearing in new members, according to Fire Chief Kevin Breen. Along with the five firefighters being sworn in, there were two promotions announced during Wednesday's Board of Selectmen meeting.

Justin Ramstine, Michael Salsgiver, Michael Lausier, Matthew Gambale, and Sean McGovern were the five sworn in. Joseph Gambale was promoted to captain and James Snow was promoted to lieutenant.
