Local fireman Kevin Whitney was honored Friday (Feb. 19) for 25 years with the Ithaca Fire Department.
Whitney has also served over 30 years with Cortlandville Fire Department.
During that time, he has held nearly every position including Captain, Assistant Chief, Deputy Chief and Chief of the Department (1999-2003).
He is now President and also Chairman of the Board of Fire Commissioners.
Ithaca fire officials recognized Whitney — and another crewmember, Wade Bardo in a Facebook post that reads:
“Kevin and Wade have been fixtures at IFD for a generation, have contributed immensely to the department’s operations and we hope will continue to be a part of this great family of ours for years to come. Thank you Wade and Kevin for all you have done, and continue to do for Ithaca!”
