Telgian President & CEO James Tomes Named to the Board of Directors of The Fireboat Fire Fighter Museum
(April 4, 2022, Phoenix, Arizona) – James Tomes, President and CEO of Telgian Holdings, Inc., was recently appointed to the Board of Directors of The Fireboat Fire Fighter Museum. The Fire Fighter has protected the US for over seven decades during some of the most harrowing incidents in American history including 9/11 and the “Miracle Landing on the Hudson.” Known as “America’s Fireboat,” the Fire Fighter provided courageous service during World War II and is a national historic landmark listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
This summer following our long stay in New London, we journeyed up the Mystic River to the Mystic Seaport Museum for the 1st time ever. We took it slow up the windy and narrow river, but the result was one of the most beautiful sails that Fighter has ever taken….all during this there were many people waving and saying hello, and horns blowing. Once through the two bridges, we landed on the north seawall of the Working Shipyard at Mystic in center view of all the visitors coming through the south entrance amongst working boats of the late 1800s and early 1900s.
