ATLANTIC CITY – Atlantic City promoted several firefighters to the rank of Battalion Chief and Fire Captain thanks to some quick thinking and technology. At Friday morning’s promotion ceremony, it was realized no one had brought a bible to City Council chambers, where the brief ceremony was held. After some quick thinking, the Bible app was pulled up on an iPad, which was then used to swear in the eight officers to their new positions.
Promoted to the rank of Battalion Chief were Joseph Haney, Allen Huggins, William Brooks, Angelo DeMaio, and Thomas Culleny, Junior.
Promoted to the rank of Fire Captain were Jeffrey Bird, James Gillespie, and Joseph Daily.
