Buffalo Fire Marshall Promoted.
We would like to congratulate our friend Edwin Ortiz on his Promotion to Captain within the Buffalo Fire Department . Ed recently retired from the United States Air Force to continue his work within the Buffalo Fire Dept. Recently he and his newest companion Alice were teamed together to assist in the detection of accelerants that may have been used during suspicious fire investigations. In 2011 Ed along with off duty buffalo police officers were proclaimed heroes when they rescued two people from a house fire less than a block from the Sorrento Cheese Italian Heritage Festival in North Buffalo. We wish Ed the very best and Congratulations on a great job. We could not think of anyone more dedicated to receive this outstanding promotion! Congratulations Capt Ortiz!
