Southside Fire Promotes Officers

They're celebrating at the Southside Fire Department, promoting six members, including three new lieutenants and a new captain. Samuel Galleta is the newest battalion chief, and Pamela Jackson is the department's first African American female promoted to lieutenant.

"I stared off as a volunteer with no experience ten years ago, here I am today a lieutenant, so it's been great," she said.

Congratulations to them all.
