On Sunday April 7th, Fire Department members & guests assembled for our annual communion. The church services and breakfast have been a tradition for almost six decades. Members march from Station #1 to the church with breakfast following in the church auditorium. Thank you to the women's auxiliary always serving an amazing breakfast. This year our guest speaker was Chief Paul Jockimo. Paul was a former company member.
Paul V Jockimo is a veteran of over 30 years in the fire service. Formerly with the New York City Fire Department, he currently works for the Westchester County (NY) Department of Emergency Services. In addition, he is the Coordinator of the Westchester-Putnam Peer Support Team and serves as the Chief of the Somers (NY) Fire District. With almost 25 years of CISM, Peer Support and Line of Duty Death experience, he has had the honor of working with scores of agencies throughout North America. The subject of Bernard Wolf’s ground breaking book “Don’t Feel Sorry for Paul”, he brings his unique life experience and humor to all he does. In 2017 he was profiled in the book “American Firefighter” by Paul Mobley. Many thanks to Paul.
