Our Warwick’s Finest!!

Your Warwick Firefighters are finishing up two officers training classes that were paid for by a federal grant. NFPA 1041 and NFPA 1021, are two very important classes in the development of good fire department officers. Covid made things a little difficult in the beginning but we are finally almost complete. #warwickfirefighters #local2748 ... See MoreSee Less

The amusement park closed in 1994 and was the number one thing to do during the summer time. The park was a mini six flags right in your backyard.

WAITING LIST LAUNCHED FOR COVID-19 VACCINE FOR WARWICK RESIDENTS 75 AND OLDER
 
Warwick residents, who are 75 and older, can now sign up to put their names on a waiting list to get the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available to the city later this month. Starting today, those residents can log onto:  warwickri.gov/vaccine and fill out a form with basic information.  
 
Once the vaccine is available, residents will receive an email with another link where they can start the registration process to set up an appointment. Following directive from the Department of Health, doses will be distributed from oldest to youngest in this specific age group.
 
A CODE RED phone call will be going out to residents letting them know about the waiting list. If a resident is not signed up for CODE RED phone calls, they can do so by logging onto the city’s website: warwickri.gov.   Under the “online resources” tab, they can click on CODE RED and follow the next steps.
 
There is no rush to sign up to be on the COVID-19 Vaccine waiting list, as the city is still waiting to receive a set schedule on the next rollout of the vaccine.
 
If residents, 75 and older, do not have access to a computer to sign up to be on the waiting list, we are urging them to reach out to family members to help them navigate the process.

On this day 19 years ago 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift. None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today and tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted...
