On Behalf of the members of E92/TL 44/B17, & every Johnny that has ever had the honor to work with him, we want to wish Captain Steve Luisi, TL-44, nothing but the best of luck in his retirement. He will be retiring today after serving 43 1/2 years in the #FDNY. The city & the job is losing one of the most respected guys to ever wear a FDNY front piece. He is a true legend & will be missed throughout the job. Steve got assigned to E254 out of probie school, 290
Engine, then spent 6 years in 103 truck before being promoted & working in 111 truck in Brooklyn as a Lt. Steve spent the last 17 years as the captain of Ladder 44 in the Bronx. Best of luck in your retirement Capt & thank you for sharing all of your knowledge in the kitchen & fire floor.

Captain Luisi, I too wish you a very Happy and Healthy Retirement.

The fact that during your 43 1/2 years you spent time in Ladder 103, Ladder 111, and Ladder 44.
That certainly speaks for itself.
All some of the BUSIEST FDNY LADDER COMPANIES within the City of New York, and perhaps the entire country.
