Christopher Bright To Be Officially Sworn In As Chief of Revere Fire Department In Ceremony On Monday at 3 PM

August 11, 2016

Mayor Brian Arrigo announced on Thursday that Christopher Bright, a 33-year veteran of the Revere Fire Department who has served as Acting Chief since the retirement of Chief Eugene Doherty, will be formally sworn in as the next Chief of the Revere Fire Department. The swearing-in will take place on Monday, August 15 at 3 PM in the City Council chambers at Revere City Hall, with Mayor Arrigo and City Clerk Ashley Melnik performing the ceremony.

Bright, 55, became a reserve member of the Revere Fire Department in 1983 and a permanent member in 1986. He progressed through the ranks, becoming Deputy Chief in 2006 and Senior Deputy Chief in 2013.

Bright earned a B.S. in Public Administration from Suffolk University in 1985 and his law degree from the New England School of Law in 1990. He is a graduate of the Massachusetts Department of Fire Services Chief Fire Officer Management Training Program, a Hazardous Materials Technician, and a certified Fire Officer IV, the highest level available in the fire service.

In 2015, Bright was awarded a Medal of Valor by Governor Charlie Baker at the Massachusetts Firefighter of the Year awards for his acts of bravery during a fire at his family home on Reservoir Ave. last February.

“It is my honor to formally appoint this decorated public servant as Chief,” said Mayor Arrigo. “For over three decades, he has demonstrated his commitment to the citizens of Revere. I’m confident that under his leadership, the Revere Fire Department will continue to thrive.”

Press and elected officials wishing to reserve seats at the swearing-in are asked to notify Linda DeMaio in Mayor Arrigo’s office at ldemaio@revere.org or 781-286-8111.
