Dispatcher 30 Signoff [10-12-14]

On the morning of October 12th, 2014 Nassau County Fire Communications Dispatcher 30 Mike Ornauer signed off of the air for the final time after twenty-six years of service. His signoff, which was done on his birthday, came just after 12:30 hours. Once Mike, nicknamed “Mr. Man” at Fire Com, completed the signoff thank you and congratulatory messages began pouring in via the radio and telephone from Chiefs and other members of the Nassau County Fire Service. Mike Ornauer officially retired on September 11th, 2014 but due to the solemnity of the day did not want to sign off at that time. For his Sunday morning signoff Mike was surrounded by family, friends, and co-workers. Mike, thank you for your dedication and service as well as your friendship and support – good luck going forward. ___ Below is the signoff given by Mike Ornauer on October 12th, 2014: “This is Nassau County Fire Com dispatcher number thirty final message from the Nassau County Fire Communications Center after a twenty-six year career working for Nassau County. To the Chiefs, Supervisors, and my co-workers at Fire Com: thank you for your support and friendship. To the Nassau County Fire Commission, past and present, it has been a pleasure working with so many of you over the past twenty-six years. To the hundreds of Chiefs, the thousands of firefighters I have been associated with during my career here at Fire Com it has been an honor and privilege to work with you and for you. To the real unsung heroes of the fire service, the people behind the scenes that don’t get the recognition they deserve, my co-workers and all the fire department dispatchers, many of whom I call friends and acquaintances, I thank you. This would not be a true sign off unless I included a couple of special messages. (clears throat) “Y”, HHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, and the hydrant is front of the house. For the last time this is Nassau County Fire Communications Dispatcher 30 signing off the air. I love you, I’ll miss talking to many of you, and God Bless.” Video from the sign off: https://youtu.be/73m0Uc69FEQ
