The Department says veteran firefighter Joe Wagner has retired after 31 years of service.

WNDU reports that Wagner was sworn into the department on January 9 of 1991 and was steadily promoted over the years, reaching Captain in 2012. The firefighters at Station 8 say he’s been an asset to the department and always shared his vast knowledge of fire service.

He also served as an instructor in the department’s Training Bureau.
