NEWBURGH, NY - Monday, December 6, 2021 was a very exciting and happy day at City of Newburgh Fire Department Headquarters, located at 22 Grand Street. After working for the Fire Department for 22 years and achieving the rank of Captain, Joseph E. LoCicero ended his career and officially retired.

Current members along with retired members, friends and family, lined up outside the firehouse to salute the captain as he walked down the path between them while Orange County Firemens Bagpipe played. At the end he turned and gave his final salute.

Congratulations and best of luck to you, Joe!
