Scarsdale's newest probationary firefighter, Timothy Duffy, was sworn in by Village Clerk Donna Conkling at Village Hall on September 19. He will begin an intensive seventeen week training program at the Westchester County Career Fire Academy at the Department of Emergency Services in Valhalla on September 23, and will return to the Scarsdale Fire Department as Nationally Certified Level II firefighters in late January 2014.
Duffy was a volunteer firefighter in his home town Stony Point before coming to Scarsdale, and continues to reside there with his wife and three children. Several on-duty Scarsdale firefighters attended the ceremony as well.
Thanks to Fire Chief Cain for the preceding story.
