Two veteran Foxboro firefighters retire

Two veteran Foxboro firefighters have retired after decades with the department. Kristen Nagobads, one of the first female firefighters in the area, and John Couroupacis were sent off with a luncheon gathering at the fire station on Tuesday.

Couroupacis was hired as a firefighter/EMT and a mechanic. Nagobads is a former Plainville firefighter and was the department’s first paramedic.

Both have responded to numerous fires and emergencies during their career. Couroupacis was part of a crew that helped save a man who fell through ice at Neponset Reservoir in 1999 and Nagobads was on a crew who helped save a man who collapsed and stopped breathing at World Gym in 2014.
