LEWISTON — Capt. Victor Gaudreau recently retired from the Lewiston Fire Department, a 37-year veteran.
He joined the department in 1974, was promoted to lieutenant in 1986 and to the rank of captain in 1989. Until his retirement on April 30, Gaudreau was assigned the area of “tools and equipment,” responsible for all Fire Department equipment.
