Senator Patricia Ritchie toured Watertown's primary fire station today and learned about the high level of training and equipment in the North Country's largest department
Fire Chief Dale Herman showed Senator Ritchie all the special response equipment as well as the front line vehicles. Ms. Ritchie also talked about her bill to provide added penalties for assaults on first responders.
With media in tow, the Senator also talked about the tax cap and some ATV law....
More important to me, the visit cements relations between the new senator and the largest city in her sprawling district.
