Fire Chief Robbie Cassou has a saying at Quincy Fire: "There is nothing you can throw away that we can't use." He added that most of their vehicles are either hand-me-downs that have been retired from other departments and are usually in rough shape, or they are homemade. "Charlie is able to restore these vehicles performing everything from major mechanical repairs to showroom quality paint jobs. All of the training props we have, including the drill tower are built by us. I have often joked that all I have to do is sketch it on a napkin and Charlie can design and build it. He is worth his weight in gold.., and then some," said Chief Cassou. His firefighting credentials are equally impressive. They include the Quincy Fire Academy; Apparatus Safety and Pump Operations and Testing, Truck Company Operations and First Responder training. "Living in a small community I see the need and opportunity to be able to help my neighbors. I take great pride and satisfaction in being able to help others, i also enjoy learning new skills to make myself a better firefighter.
