Fire Department Welcomes New Full-Time Member

By: Rich Hosford

Burlington Fire Department has a new full-time member. 


Chief Steve Yetman recommended Tyler Falconer be appointed during the selectmen meeting this week. Town Administrator John Petrin made the appointment and the board waived the standard 15-day waiting period. 


Falconer was appointed as an intermittent member of the department last November and now due to a vacancy was moved up to a full-time firefighter. The department was also able to get him a spot at the Fire Academy. 


Yetmans said he is a nationally registered emergency medical technician. Falconer was born and raised in Burlington and was a member of the BHS Class of 2010. He served in the United States Navy and was honorably discharged last fall. In 2012 he received Junior Sailor of the Quarter as well as Junior Sailor of the Year.
