A Historic First for Seekonk


Sandra Lowery made history on Saturday as she was installed as the town’s first female Fire Chief.

Lowery had been serving as Interim Chief before her appointment to the position by the Board of Selectmen last October. Lowery has been a member of the department for 20 years.

“You have a track record of being compassionate, dedicated, effective, and professional,” Selectmen Chairman Justin Sullivan said to Lowery. “You can build on the work of those chiefs before you and insure that the Seekonk Fire Department is better than ever.”

Lowery said being Fire Chief was “very humbling” and promised to “strive for excellence.”

State Senator Paul Feeney, D-Foxboro, and State Rep. Steve Howitt, R-Seekonk, were also present to honor Lowery, along with members of the Police Department, and the Rehoboth Fire Chief and Deputy Chief.

Reverend John Amaral delivered the invocation and benediction.
