Oct 07, 2019

Thomaston — Steep stairs, balloon construction, concealed spaces, no fire stops between floors, and old electric are just some of the challenges in historic homes that Thomaston Fire Chief Mikial (Mike) Mazzeo will discuss Thursday night, Oct. 17, at 7 p.m. in Watts Hall, 174 Main St.

Mazzeo’s presentation will offer tips for fire safety and prevention for those buying or restoring old homes, backed up with experience and stories. Mazzeo has more than 30 years in the fire service and has been fire chief in Thomaston since 2016. He is also the town’s forest fire warden and a paramedic. In addition, he has been a career firefighter for Rockland Fire Department since 1992 and has been an assistant fire chief there for nearly 15 years.

This talk is part of an information series presented by the Historic Thomaston Resource Group, which is focused on preserving the outstanding examples of historic architecture in Thomaston.
