The Jersey City Fire Department responds to 1,300 fires each year, according to a statement by Mayor Steven M. Fulop.

New firefighters were sworn in Tuesday as members of the city fire department, including one named Sam Springsteen.

And the Boss and his leading lady, Patti Scialfa, had front-row seats for the big moment.

NBC News reported that a smiling Sam said "it wasn't easy" when asked about the process of becoming a Jersey City firefighter.

"It was a long road, he was very dedicated for quite a few years and we are just excited for him today", proud dad Bruce, 70, told CBS New York of his youngest son.

Sam Springsteen was joined by his famous mother and father, Patti Scialfa, at city hall with mayor Steven Fulop and other city officials. She told her son to "stay safe" and "love your fearless heart!"

Patti Scialfa congratulates her son Sam Springsteen.

Jersey City officials say it's the 10th class fire department since Fulop took office. We got to spend some time in my office talking about music but more than that they're proud parents of a new JC Firefighter.

The other children of Springsteen and Scialfa are accomplished in their own right.
