Mayor Charles Lombardi and others gathered at the town’s volunteer firefighter monument last Sunday to rededicate it in its new spot outside the North Providence Public Safety Complex.

NORTH PROVIDENCE – Town officials and guests on Sunday held a ceremony to dedicate the 56-year-old Volunteer Firefighters Memorial Monument at its new location next to the fire side of the North Providence Public Safety Complex on Mineral Spring Avenue.

The monument, with its five stones dedicated to the five volunteer departments with roots going back 134 years, was previously located across the street in the parking lot at North Providence High School, but Mayor Charles Lombardi said the decision was ultimately made to move it to a more fitting spot.
