By CFD News Team
January 2, 2018

On Tuesday evening - in front of over 60 members and guests - the new and returning Officers of the Croton-on-Hudson Fire Department for 2018 were sworn in to their roles.

Mayor Brian Pugh issued each of our new Firematic Officers their oaths, many of which were taking on new leadership roles in our nearly 126 year old department. Joining him in the audience and lending their support were Village of Croton Manager Janine King, and long-time friend of the Department Trustee/Deputy Mayor Ann Gallelli.

Leading the pack of new Officers is Chris Colombo, who took on the oath of Chief, succeeding outgoing Chief Matthew T. Mansfield, who selflessly led our department for the past two years in this role. Chief Colombo is a long-time member of the CFD, serving the past four years as an Assistant Chief. Colombo's Grandfather, the late William E. King, Sr., was also a Chief, serving in 1961 and 1962. Chief Colombo is a Life Member of Washington Engine Company No. 2, where his son, Chris Colombo, Jr., is one of it's newest Firefighters.

Following the new Chief in their ascent up the executive ladder is our new First Assistant Chief, Chris Pesavento. As tradition goes, he moves up from 2nd Assistant Chief to his new role as second in command. Pesavento's Father, Bruno Pesavento, Sr., also served as a Chief Officer of the CFD from 1976-1978. Both Pesavento's are senior members of Columbian Hook & Ladder Company No. 1.

Rounding out our three-tiered Executive Branch is our new Second Assistant Chief, John Munson. Munson is making his second climb up the department's ladder, having served as Chief of Department in 2012 and 2013. Munson's father, Gerald Munson, was also a two-time Chief, leading the department from 1986-1988 and again in 1998-2000, and while that in itself is impressive, what's also worth mentioning is that the late Elwood C. Munson, Sr. - Gerald's father and John's grandfather - was the first member of the department to be it's Chief twice, having held that title in 1954-1955 and again in 1959-1960. Both John and Gerry are Life Members of Washington Engine Company No. 2, and serve there with several other cousins/relatives, including Chief of Department Colombo, Captain Jim Feguson, 2nd Lieutenant Chris Rinaldi and Deputy Chief Stephen Dominello as well as Firefighters Dave Rinaldi (a Past Captain), Alyssa Rinaldi, Jake Dominello and Chris Colombo Jr.

This department is now on it's way to celebrating our 126th year of proud, dedicated service, and those that have chosen to be our Officers will undoubtedly steer us in the right direction. We thank all of them for their committed service to our department, and look forward to seeing what the future holds for all of us in the CFD.

Lastly, we would like to thank not only Chief Mansfield, but all of our outgoing Officers, for their guidance in 2017. It truly takes a special kind of person to join this organization, but it really is an impressive feat for someone to step up and be an Officer in it.
