Excerpts from WGNtv.com:

A legendary Chicago firefighter is on his last tour of duty. For more than three decades, Tom Casey has served the city through some of the biggest emergencies.

He`s been one of the Chicago Fire Department’s most beloved and characters.  He was part of the Chicago contingent that traveled to New York to help in the aftermath of the Sept 11th attacks.

When the city exhibited painted fire hydrants , one was dedicated to the Casey clan. Friday at a fire station on 16th at Pulaski, friends and family shared memories and wished Casey the best.
