|Mayor Cassetti presents Joseph Kingston with a |
certification of appreciation for his dedication and years of services
Joe was succeeded by Fire Chief Scott Trembley in January following his two-year term. Prior to his departure as chief, Kingston completed 10 years of service in all four assistant chief positions and had been a fireman for many years prior.
The event was presided over by Master of Ceremonies Joe Kingston Jr., who also serves as a fireman alongside his father, both members of the Hilltop Hose Fire House.
Kingston's service was lauded by representatives of all five Ansonia fire houses who honored him and thanked him for his service to Ansonia and the Valley.
Ansonia Mayor David S. Cassetti personally thanked Kingston on behalf of Ansonia’s residents, thanking him for his past and continued service as one of Ansonia’s bravest.
Also on hand were Fire Commissioners Pat Henri and Phil Tripp, who were moved by the display of brotherhood within the department.
Kingston was whole-heartedly thankful to all in attendance, gratefully recognizing the fire department and his family for all the time and commitment they put in, and for all the help they provided him while he was chief.
