Gov. Baker, Revere Sr Deputy Bright and Chief Gene Doherty November 26, 2015 By Seth Daniel-Revere Journal The family homestead on Reservoir Avenue for Senior Deputy Chief Chris Bright had always been a welcome sight a beacon of fond memories from the past. Now, the burnt out house has recently been bulldozed – the site of a bittersweet effort from the long-time firefighter where he rescued one uncle, but another perished due to the flames. It was a rescue and overall effort that was highlighted on Monday in the campus of MIT where he collected the Medal of Valor for the state Firefighter of the Year awards.
