Milton Firefighter Tony Pickens

Public announcement made during a concert at the Milton Town Green the evening of July 3, 2007:

Good evening. I’m Jeff Stone. Most of you have signed a large get-well card that Gail Marie Dwyer has been circulating around. Thank you for signing it. I’d like to make a short announcement about something that is important to the community.

Milton Firefighter Tony Pickens was struck by a car this week and he was severely injured. He is currently fighting for his life at a Boston hospital and he has a long road to go to recovery.

Tony was helping at a minor accident outside the Atherton St. Fire Station when he was hit. His fellow firefighters administered first aid immediately and probably saved his life.
Our first responders – fire, police, EMT’s – are priceless and precious to the community. This is a reminder of how they put their lives in danger to help others. Please, let’s keep Tony Pickens in our prayers and thoughts at this time. Thank you.

If you somehow missed this story:

The most recent press reports list Tony's condition as being slightly upgraded from critical to serious.
