With his famous parents looking on, Bruce Springsteen’s son was sworn in Tuesday morning as a Jersey City firefighter at City Hall.

Sam Springsteen, who turned 26 earlier this month, was one of 15 new Jersey City firefighters sworn in during a half-hour ceremony that filled the City Council chambers.

The youngest of Bruce and singer-songwriter Patti Scialfa’s three children had been a member of the Colts Neck Fire Department close to his folks’ home.

He then trained for five months with his fellow Jersey City newbies at the Morris County Public Safety Training Academy.

“It wasn’t easy,” he told reporters Tuesday.

“It was a long road, and he was very dedicated,” his proud father said.

The other new Jersey City firefighters: Sean Brady, John Bramley Jr., Andrew Crilly, Francis Degnan, Richard Ferment, Jason Garrison, Luke Gibbons, Conor Keim, Thomas McFarlane, Angel Ortez, Shane Richeal, Omar Soto, Connor Wujciak and Francesca Zappella.
