Nearly 41 years and thousands of calls later, Lancaster City Fire Deputy Chief David Amico is hanging up his helmet. He’s retiring on Thursday. “A lot of emotions, a lot of feelings I wasn’t sure I was prepared to deal with here. 40 years is two-thirds of my life,” said Amico. During Amico’s career he got to work alongside his father and father-in-law who were both firefighters. Amico is one of only a handful of Lancaster City firefighters to put in more than 40 years in the department’s nearly 140 year history. “I still like my job. I still like helping the community, going out and doing stuff with the citizens. I like working with the people that I work with in the fire department here,” said Amico.
