Chief Patterson said the department interviewed three candidates for the position. 

“After the interviews we felt that the candidate we’re presenting tonight would be the best fit for our department,” he said. “So at this time I’m pleased to present Patrick O’Halloran.” 

Patterson added that O’Halloran has expressed a desire to become a full time member of the department. 

“Patrick’s long-range goal is to become a member of the Burlington Fire Department as a firefighter/paramedic so I’m really pleased to present his name to the board,” he said. 

Members of the Board welcomed O’Halloran to the department. They also voted unanimously to waive the normal 15-day waiting period on new hires. 

“I’d like to welcome you to the Burlington Fire Department,” Board Chair Joe Morandi said. “I think you’re going to be a great asset when the time arrives and you get in as a full time member.”

“Welcome Patrick and I’m confident you’re going to do a great job for us,” Selectman Mike Runyan, also a member of the Fire Department, said.
