How a Leeds House burned to the ground, and the NFD never pumped from the swimming pools in the neighborhood
The First Meadowbrook Fire, where Northampton firemen had to stand around and watch a
building burn down. Published in April of 2009
Conflict of InterestDuring the years 2006 to 2012, Chief Duggan
did a lot of work for other communities in five New England states. He worked for, and had an interest in Municipal Resources Inc (MRI) by means of a merger between Brian Duggan LLC and
MRI, and headed up a team of people that evaluated fire department operations in many towns and cities. The peculiar structure of our department, which delegates extensive responsibilities
to Deputy Chiefs, made it possible to do a lot of his work out of his home and on the road.
