NJ State Firemen's Association Wildwood Convention
Congratulations to the South Amboy Fire Department and First Aid Squad for their excellent showings in Wildwood this weekend. They again showed why South Amboy has the best volunteers in the state! Their professionalism makes South Amboy proud. It was also my distinct honor to accept flowers on behalf of the Celecki family in remembrance of Gerald "Bear" Celecki who passed away in the line of duty. The memorial ceremony was a great tribute to him and the other firefighters who passed in the line of duty. I would like to thank all of our first responders for their contributions in keeping the citizens of South Amboy safe. Your service does not go unnoticed. Thank you.
