Statement of Randolph Police Chief William Pace

RANDOLPH — The following is a statement from Randolph Police Chief William Pace:

“Earlier today, the public safety community lost one of its own and the Town of Randolph lost a resident. Watertown Firefighter Joseph Toscano, age 54, reportedly died as a result of a medical emergency he suffered while battling a fire Friday morning.

“On behalf of the Randolph Police Department and the entire community, I offer my most sincere condolences to the Toscano family, including Joseph’s wife and five children. Firefighter Toscano served the Watertown Fire Department bravely for more than 20 years.

“The Randolph Police Department asks that members of the public and the news media please respect the privacy of the Toscano family and not intrude upon their grief during this most difficult time.”
