Affirmed.
Retirement Board properly denied firefighter's application for duty disability pension; Plaintiff had been promoted to deputy district chief (DDC) and held that position up until time of injury. No evidence suggested that Plaintiff, with his current physical limitation, would be unable to perform functions of DDC, which were different that duties of active firefighter. (QUINN, concurring; CUNNINGHAM, specially concurring.)
