Pay Tribute To Fire Chiefs
Under the direction of Chief Michael DeLisa of the Long Branch, N. J., Fire Department, tribute was paid, in a very impressive manner, to the fifty-five former Chiefs of the Volunteer Department, twenty-eight of whom are living and twenty-seven of whom are dead. Over 150 firemen and guest were present to honor the department Chiefs.
The living Chiefs were introduced by Assistant Chief T. VanDyke, while an impressive roll-call for the deceased leaders was conducted. A feature of the service was the attendance of the oldest living department Chief. Forrest Green, who served in ’98.
