Wallingford, Ct., Battalion Chief Jim ...

Wallingford, Ct., Battalion Chief Jim Duffy (left) drove down to West New York after getting off work to wish his buddy, North Hudson Deputy Chief Anthony Avillo, best wishes during his retirement lunch at Squad 1's quarters.

North Hudson Deputy chief Anthony Avillo spent his last day on the job as commander of the 1st Platoon on February 26th. After 30-years, first with the former Weehawken Fire Department, and then as part of the North Hudson Regional department that was established in 1999, the deputy chief has retired from front-line duty.
Avillo has a long list of credentials including a B.S. Degree in Fire Science from New Jersey City University, a Fire Department Instructors Conference (FDIC) instructor and member of the FDIC advisory board and the editorial advisory board of Fire Engineering magazine, as well as an instructor at the Bergen County Fire Academy (1990-2013) and the Monmouth County Fire Academy (2011-present).
As a youth, Avillo lived on 16th Street in Union City, just up the block from Fire Headquarters. He remembers the new and big Snorkel apparatus that was assigned to Truck Co. 1. “It was the coolest thing I ever saw,� he said. At the time, however, he did not aspire to become a firefighter. His family later moved to North Bergen. He was home from college and took the Civil Service test for firefighter because “all my friends took it.� There were no applications left in North Bergen, so his cousin told him to pick one up in Weehawken, and, also apply for the Weehawken job. He was appointed to the Weehawken F.D. in 1984. He served as captain of Truck 2 before being promoted to battalion chief. When the five North Hudson fire departments merged into NHRFR, he was chief in the first and second battalions before his promotion to deputy chief.
“There is no other job on the face of the earth in which there is such a commitment and dedication to what some outsiders may see as 'just a job,'� he said. “I have many countless friends on this job,� he continued. “It is family.�
Additional contributions to the national Fire Service include authoring “Fireground Strategies 2nd edition and the 3rd edition that is due out in April. He also authored “Fireground Strategies� workbooks, Volume I and II. He is a contributing author to Fire Engineering's Handbook for Firefighter I and II and is co-author of the study guides.
In 2012 he was the recipient of Fire Engineering's ISFSI George D. Post Fire Instructor of the Year Award. He is currently working on a new book with retired North Hudson Chief Ed Flood on leadership. In addition, Avillo and Wallingford, Ct., Battalion Chief Jim Duffy host a monthly radio show on the Fire Engineering Blog Talk radio called “Fireground Strategies and Other Stuff from the Street.
During his last tour, firefighters-active and retired, and friends met at Squad Co. 1's quarters to wish Avillo well in his upcoming active retirement. Companies from throughout the region took turns stopping by, and a retirement plaque was presented to the 1st Platoon chief by his fellow members. In a surprise appearance, B.C. Duffy drove down from Connecticut, after getting off work at 11 a.m. from a “job� in his town, to wish his co-radio host and friend the best.
