Lt. Chetney Retires from Oswego Fire Department

The Oswego Fire Department announces the retirement of Lieutenant Christopher Chetney after more than 20 years of service.

He was appointed to the department on June 18, 1992, and retired on March 31, 2013.

Lt. Chetney spent the majority of his career assigned to “A” shift being promoted from Firefighter to Lieutenant on December 15, 2004.

He also served the department as a temporary captain.

Lt. Chetney was also a member of the Oswego Fire Department’s Rapid Intervention Team.

He served in various capacities for both the Oswego Firefighters Association as well as Firefighters Local 2707 including chairman of the Annual Firefighters Ball.

“It’s with mixed feelings that I think about Chet’s retirement. I am happy for him as he enters the next phase of this life, and he will be missed here by the OFD,” said Jeff McCrobie, fire chief. “I think Lt. Chetney’s greatest asset was his interaction with the public as well as his fellow firefighters. He could always be counted on to deliver what we refer to as excellent ‘customer service,’ be it on the fire ground, EMS calls, or many details where we interact with the public.”

Chetney resides in Oswego with his wife, Kim; daughters, Jill, Katie and Kelly; and granddaughters, Amaya and Jiyanna.
