Pachico sworn in as fifth W.T. fire chief


Greg Pachico was sworn in Monday evening as the fifth fire chief of West Tisbury. Town clerk Tara Whiting-Wells swore in Chief Pachico outside Fire Station No. 2, against the backdrop of Engine 722. In addition to his family, Chief Pachico was joined by outgoing Chief Manuel Estrella III, former West Tisbury Fire Chief Billy Haynes, Tri-Town Ambulance Chief Ben Retmier, West Tisbury Police Chief Matt Mincone, former West Tisbury Police Chief Daniel Rossi, select board members Kent Healy and Skipper Manter, highway superintendent Richard Olsen, West Tisbury firefighters, West Tisbury police officers, and other guests. Pachico’s wife, Heidi, pinned the chief’s shield on his uniform after he was sworn in. 

“He’ll do a great job,” Chief Estrella told The Times. Estrella, Pachico’s father-in-law, signs off as chief on Wednesday.
