Due to the state Covid restrictions finally lifted on May 29, I am delighted to report that MIFDI will be able to meet once again for our June meeting!

The meeting will be held on WEDNESDAY JUNE 23 hosted by the Lexington Fire Department courtesy of Chief Derek Secabaugh.  We will meet in the first floor training room of their NEW fire HQ located at 45 Bedford St (Rt.4/225).

Our presentation will be provided by retired ATF Special Agent Wayne Miller, author of the book “Burn Boston Burn”. Agent Miller was involved with the arson investigation in the Boston area during the difficult cutbacks caused after Prop 2.5 in the early 1980’s. His fascinating presentation walks us through the challenging process and finally to an important brake in the case to arrest and convict the group responsible for the destructive and dangerous rash of 264 building fire’s over a 2-year period.

In addition, just prior to Wayne’s presentation, we will have a brief “Show & Tell” of a Firefighter RIT board created to assist with the removal of a down firefighter.
