Firefighter Anthony DeSimone was posthumously promoted to Lieutenant of the North Haven (CT) Fire Department by the North Haven Fire Commission at a special meeting recently. Firefighter DeSimone had been working hard to achieve the rank of Lieutenant and was on the department’s current promotion list after passing both written and assessment center testing.

He continued to sign up for continuing education classes to further prepare himself for a leadership role as a company officer. Fire Chief Januszewski stated, “The elevation of Firefighter DeSimone to the rank was inevitable. He had studied hard and committed himself to furthering his education within the fire service.”

Fire Commission Chairman Pasquale Nuzzolillo stated, “It’s an honor to promote Firefighter DeSimone to the rank of Lieutenant and his family should be proud.” The promotion was effective on August 28, 2023.
