In February, City of Newburgh Fire Department Assistant Chief Ed Petricek walked out to former and active members of the department, as well as other local fire department members and Deputy Fire Coordinators to give his final salute. As bagpipes played, the command was given attention and all members presented arms for the salute as Ed walked in between the two rows of people. We wish Ed the best of luck!
