Passing of Associate Life Member Robert Mauro
It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Detachment Associate Life Member, Life Member and former Fairview Fire Chief Robert Mauro, who retired last month after a 45-year career in the fire service, died March 13 at White Plains Hospital Center. He was 76. Mauro began his firefighting career as a volunteer in Thornwood, while working at the General Precision Laboratory there. He joined the Fairview department in 1965. Mauro was promoted to lieutenant after four years, became a captain in 1975 and was named chief two years later. He led the town's largest fire district for the next 33 years. During the 1980s, he helped draft state law that requires hotels and motels to furnish each room with smoke detectors for the hearing impaired. He was vice chairman of the Greenburgh Health Center and an aide at the White Plains Phobia Clinic, helping people manage panic and anxieties. He was very involved with our Toys for Tots and Flag programs.
