Due to the extended medical leave of Oak Bluffs fire EMS lieutenants Matt Bradley and Mike Desrosiers, paramedic Trulayna Rose has been promoted to interim lieutenant.
The appointment, effective Nov. 6, will be for up to four months, Chief John Rose said. Deputy Chief Shawn Broadley recommended Ms. Rose for the job.
“Trulayna has already been in a supervisory position for five years,” Mr. Broadley said. “She’s the senior paramedic, and she has a strong working knowledge of the department.”
Ms. Rose began as a junior firefighter with the department in 1998.
