Governor Phil Murphy

Statement by Governor Murphy on the Passing of Professional Firefighters Association of New Jersey President Dominick Marino


“Dominick Marino didn’t just run into burning buildings, he knocked down walls to protect his fellow firefighters. He put his heart and soul into everything he did for his members, and in doing so he exemplified everything you ever could want from a leader. One of the great honors of my governorship was to sign the Thomas P. Canzanella 21st Century First Responders Protection Act, but that bill could just as easily have carried Dominick’s name because of the dedication he showed in getting it passed. I will miss his friendship and good counsel, and his regular check ins, including this week. He was one of a kind. My deepest condolences go out to his family, his membership, and the entire New Jersey firefighting community.”
