PHOTO: 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]
