Chief Thomas D. Levy
Bridgewater Fire Department
Chief Tom Levy began his distinguished career with the Bridgewater Fire Department in 1987 where he has been a member of the Department for nearly three decades. Bridgewater is a full-time department of 51 members serving a community of 28,000 in addition to a State University and Correctional Facility.
Raised in a family rich in firefighting tradition, Levy grew up here in Bridgewater where his father was Chief and several members of his family served on the same Department. In addition to his father, Tom’s great-grandfather, several of his uncles, and his brother have all served for the Bridgewater Fire Department.
A graduate of Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School, Levy served as a Military Police Officer in the Army and a Corrections Officer at MCI-Bridgewater before joining the Bridgewater Fire Department at the age of 25. Tom began his career in firefighting/EMS under the leadership of his father, Chief Clarence “Brother” Levy.
In 2006 Levy was appointed Deputy Chief, a position in which he served as the senior command officer for ten years. In May of 2016 Levy was named Chief of the Department and Emergency Management Director for the Town. Upon his appointment as Chief, Tom’s call sign was designated “Car 3-0”, a tribute to his late father, and an example of his passion for tradition and dedication to family.
Chief Levy is very active in the Bridgewater and Raynham communities. He is a longtime member of the Board of Directors of the Bridgewater Youth Football program and actively volunteers his time.
He currently resides in Raynham with his wife Lorraine and their daughters Kate and Caroline.
