23rd October 2014 by Mike

It is with great sadness to let you know that we lost one of our own yesterday.  Bruce Kilmer passed away suddenly, our thoughts and prayers go out to Chrissy and his entire family.  He was a kind, geniune man with a 38 year career with the Pittsfield Fire Department.

RIP Deputy Chief Kilmer
