Ahlers Does Final
City of Newburgh Fire Department Walkout
Terry Ahlers started with Newburgh fire Department November 29,1999. On January 2,2020 Acting Fire Chief Ahlers walked out to many firefighters , dispatchers and friends at the Fire Headquarters Public Safety Building. Everyone gave him a well deserved applause. Terry walked down both sides of the row and shook hands with every fire fighter that had lined up, and then joined his wife. Terry decided it was time to retire as the city are cutting back services in Newburgh and made a generous offer of retiring several months early in the hope of saving place for some another firefighter’s job.
