NEW YORK — FDNY's first female rescue company member retired this week after serving for 27 years.

Lt. Adrienne Walsh hugged her colleagues in a video posted by News 12 Brooklyn.

“I thank everyone I worked with over the years,” said Walsh, as dozens of fellow firefighters saw her off. “You taught me well, made me laugh, and I will miss you all terribly.”
