Ember Social Club of Massachusetts Honors Chief William Gross

Today, Thursday, April 16, 2015, at the Freeport Tavern in Dorchester, members of the Ember Social Club of Massachusetts, a group of approximately 30 retired Fire Chiefs/Commissioners from the Metro Boston area, gathered to present Chief Gross with the Ember Award. The Ember Awards is a hugely symbolic honor given to leaders in our community who’ve demonstrated the ability to always remain humble and true to those they supervise and watch over. Said Chief Gross: “To be honored by fellow first responders makes this award extra special and significant. I learned a long time ago that if you want to get people to do their best, you have to remember that people don’t work for you, they work with you.”
