BY LIZA STROUT - When you grow up on a small island, you know everyone your own age. When you are the daughter of the island cop, you know everyone at the station. So when Island School teacher Theresa Caccavale first saw Patrick O’Connor, she was curious.
“It was Fire Prevention Week at The Island School, and we were out with the kids, looking at the fire trucks and watching the demonstrations,” said Theresa. “There was this firefighter who I had never met. He was my age. And I had no idea who he was.”
“It was October 13, 2009,” said Patrick with a grin.
