(Bayonne, NJ) – Mayor Jimmy Davis issued the following statement on the announced retirement of Bayonne Fire Chief Greg Rogers:
“For over a year and a half I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside Chief Rogers in our shared efforts to keep the people of Bayonne safe.
Greg’s career encompasses 35 years of outstanding service to our community. During his 8 years as Fire Chief he successfully led his department through numerous emergencies and natural disasters including: Hurricane Irene, Hurricane Sandy, several blizzards, and multi-alarm fires. Prior to becoming Chief, he was a highly decorated and recognized firefighter and officer, gaining formal recognition by the Department as well as local and regional organizations.
During our time together we were witness to several major accomplishments, including: the completion of the Peninsula Firehouse, the induction of the first female firefighter in our City’s history, and the acquisition of grants which keep our uniformed men and women safe as they run into situations that most would run away from.
I extend my many thanks and appreciation to Chief Rogers for his service, and wish him all of the best in retirement.”
