After nearly 31 years of service, City of Newburgh Fire Chief Bill Horton walked out of fire headquarters for the last time on Wednesday, December 16, 2020. Members of the department stood at attention and saluted as the bagpipes played. Bill Horton turned around and saluted the members back as he thanked them for coming out on the cold day to say goodbye. He hugged and shook hands with the FD members before completing his last order, which was to get back inside where it's warm.
