FIRE COMMISSIONER CASSANO TO PRESIDE AT CEREMONY PROMOTING 35 LIEUTENANTS TO THE RANK OF CAPTAIN

Fire Commissioner Salvatore J. Cassano will preside over a ceremony promoting 35 Lieutenants to the rank of Captain at 11 a.m. Wednesday, August 4, in the auditorium at the FDNY Academy on Randall’s Island.

“This is a happy day for our newest Captains and their families. They have all taken the next step up the career ladder, taking on more responsibility in the firehouse,” Commissioner Cassano said. “Being a Captain in the FDNY is not an easy job. But it is a very important and rewarding one.  It requires a lot of hard work to pass the exams, a lot of time away from family and a great deal of commitment.  We’re very proud of all those being promoted.”

The members being promoted comprise over 450 years of experience in the New York City Fire Department and will be assigned to various units throughout the City.

WHO:

Fire Commissioner Salvatore J. Cassano, Chief of Department Edward S. Kilduff, Chief of Operations Robert Sweeney, many other FDNY officials and their families.

WHERE:

FDNY Academy, Building 9 Auditorium, Randall’s Island

WHEN:

Wednesday, August 4 at 11 a.m.
