Bruce Springsteen’s Son Could Join Jersey City Fire Department; Springsteen Exhibit to Open in Freehold
Bruce Springsteen’s son, Sam, is one step closer to being a Jersey City fireman, according to multiple reports.
Sam took the civil service exam last year to become a firefighter in 2018, and although the scores have now been released, they have not yet gone public.
If the youngest Springsteen is one of the top 60 scorers, and accepts, he’ll have to take a physical and then endure training at a Morristown fire academy.
Springsteen is a friend to firefighters. His song, “The Rising” was written from the perspective of a firefighter climbing the stairs of one of the towers on the day of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan.
Sam is younger brother to Evan, a 28-year-old singer/songwriter, and Jessica, a 27-year-old champion equestrian.
In other Springsteen news: a new exhibit “My Hometown,” is set to open in the autumn 2019 at Monmouth County Historical Association Museum in Freehold.
Melissa Ziobro, Monmouth University’s specialist professor of public history, will hold a special talk 7 p.m. today (March 27) at the Middletown Public Library.
