Promotions and Additions at EFD
ELMIRA (WENY) -- Five promotions and two new additions were announced at the Elmira Fire Department.
Former Captain Carlo Masia has been promoted to Deputy Chief after over 20 years of service.
"If i had to do it all over again, I'd start with day one, start all over again and trade places with our new recruits coming in. It's been a great job," said Masia.
Both Lance Snyder and Scott Temple are now Captains after previously serving as Lieutenants for years.
And both Christopher Putney and Daniel Lutz were named Lieutenants.
The Fire Department also welcomed Joshua Clark and Micael Palmieri to the team.
"My dad was a firefighter for the City of Elmira for 30 years. I always looked up to him for the job that he did and I'd love to follow in his foot steps," said Palmieri.
"I spent some time in the millitary and I did some firefighting, I really enjoyed it. I've always had a passion for helping people, so I figured this would be a good fit for me," said Clark.
David Jessick, Robert Lutz and Christopher Cartwright retired from the department after decades of service.
