GREENWICH, Conn. — Both the fire chief and assistant fire chief have been reprimanded by First Selectman Peter Tesei for their role in planning recent drills in which fire trucks went out on mock calls with their lights and sirens activated to collect response-time information.
Chief Peter Siecienski and Assistant Chief Robert Kick received a verbal rebuke last week about public safety risks involved in sending fire trucks out on non-emergency calls, said Tesei, who serves as fire and police commissioner.
