Atlantic City, Non-Political

A New Firefighter Crop

   Twenty-nine people were made Atlantic City Firefighters.  Two members of the group were women, who are also military veterans, and one is a mother.  Lynda Cohen of the Press of Atlantic City writes:

The class is ready, Battalion Chief Paul Shropshire said.

“We put a piece of us into each one of you,” the instructor said. “Before, I would only call you recruits. I am proud to say today you are now firefighters.

The new Atlantic City firefighters are: Gennaro Basso, Gragg, Harvey, Stephen Duran, Berthold, Andrew Biscieglia, Thomas Flanagan, Ranon McLaughlin, Joshua Hoag, James Gillespie III, Cadavid, Martin Basso, Juan Flores, Coaxum, Dominic Berry, Broer Linblad, Michael McCabe, Watson, Pollock, Vincent Carleo, Sven Peltonen, Neil Anderson Jr., Blair, Ismail Abdussamad, Keith Coursey Jr., Andrew Lubaczewski, William Hamilton, Jr., Salvatore Cavalieri and Andrew Kyle.

   We welcome the new members.  The Atlantic City Firefighters do a great job.  The ceremony for the new firefighters is a continuity of custom.  May they continue the ACFD’s great traditions.


About Jesse O. Kurtz

I am committed to fulfilling the promise of Atlantic City. The town would benefit from greater political participation by average citizens. Hopefully, some of the posts herein will encourage you to get more involved in your community. This blog will also feature other topics and subjects beyond Atlantic City. I hope that you will come to love Atlantic City as much, or more than I do.
