PHOTO: Lakewood Fire Department 2nd Assistant Fire Chief Sworn In

siverioPHOTO: Veteran Lakewood firefighter Joe Siverio was sworn in as the Lakewood Fire Department’s new 2nd Assistant Chief. Department members and friends looked on as Siverio was sworn in by his friend and Ex Chief Richard “Dick” Wallace during a department meeting last night.

Siverio’s move into the position of 2nd Assistant comes after the recentlt implemented Garcia law took effect, leaving the position open after the Chief stepped down. As a result, the 1st Assistant Chief Steve McNamara moved into the Chief’s position, and 2nd Assistant Chief Michael D’Elia Jr. moved into the position of 1st Assistant Chief.

Siverio is from Station 64, and has been a member for over 20 years. [TLS-85/TLS-CCP]

  1. Sorry I couldn’t be present but honored to follow you into any situation that you will be commanding. You will be a great leader and looking forward to the next few years especially with our qualified leaders. Stay safe!

  2. No #5 the new commissioners are not firefighters thus they will not be afforded time in the firefighte’rs meetings. They can be sworn in at their own meetings.
