WARREN — The Warren Fire Department was the recipient of the 2021 Spirit of America Foundation award from the town.

The Select Board presented the department with a plaque Thursday, Nov. 4.

The department was selected for this award for organizing a benefit dinner for Select Board Member Roger Peabody, as well as a fundraiser for the Morton Campaign.

“The Firefighters are on call 24/7 and spend countless hours in preparation training each year,” said Town Manager Sherry Howard. “Though their duties are challenging enough in normal times, these volunteers have faced additional personal risks and difficulties during the pandemic.”

The Spirit of America Foundation award recipient is selected by each municipality for service and volunteerism to the community.
