It is with deep regret the Centereach Fire Department announces the passing of Life Member & Ex-Chief Nick Potito. Nick Potito joined the Centereach Fire Department in 1966, a charter member of Engine Company 3 he would go onto become an Lieutenant in Company 3 and would serve as Captain in 1985 & 1986. He later moved up to the rank of Assistant Chief which he served from 1986 to 1988 and elected Chief of the Department in 1989 & 1990. We are saddened by the loss of our Chief and fellow brother firefighter and send the deepest sympathy to his family and friends. Rest East Chief you will not be forgotten.
