2018 City Fire Rookie of the Year!


On Saturday, December 8th, City Fire celebrated this past year’s success at The Loft at 350 in West Orange. During the night, our City Fire family gathered to eat, drink and dance. As a family owned business, we really enjoy every chance we get to gather outside of the office and enjoy each other’s company. Throughout the night, the dance floor was packed with help from our friend Jack from LJ DJ.

During the evening, Paul McGrath, president of City Fire, spoke about the great success that our City Fire family accomplished in 2018. For the first time ever, he revealed the City Fire Rookie of the Year. This award is given to recognize an employee who exemplifies what a City Fire employee is. The City Fire Rookie of the Year award was founded in 2018 to recognize a City Fire employee who has made a big impact in their short time with the company. City Fire’s team of supervisors come together to nominate an employee who they feel has made a substantial impact within the company and someone who truly embodies the company’s core values.

It was Paul McGrath’s pleasure to announce Patrick Deighan as the 2018 City Fire Rookie of the year! Patrick joined the City Fire Family in February of 2017 as a service technician and in this short time, he has become a valuable City Fire employee. Patrick exemplifies City Fire’s core values and mission. When he joined our team he came with some experience in fire extinguishers, but he has made a consistent effort to learn and excel in all services that we provide. Our Customers appreciate and value the extra effort he shows by explaining what he is doing and how the fire protection equipment works.
