Fire Chief Thomas. D. Miserendino, 71, arrived at the fire station on May 25th in full dress uniform to participate in the fire department’s annual Memorial Day Ceremony & Parade. Chief Miserendino officiated over the memorial services at the fire station and then drove fire apparatus in the parade across town where he was scheduled to perform memorial duties during the town’s official ceremony at a local veteran’s park. Shortly after his arrival at the town’s ceremony, Chief Miserendino began to feel ill, and other members observed that something was wrong with him. EMS responded and he was transported to a local hospital for care. Past Fire Chief Thomas. D. Miserendino  was admitted for cardiac treatment and was discharged the next day.
