Departures, returns at fire department
November 23, 2022
It was a day of goodbyes and returns during the Tuesday, Nov. 15, Sweet Home Fire & Ambulance District's board of directors meeting at the Jim Riggs Community Center.
Fire Chief Nick Tyler presented recently retired Deputy Chief Doug Emmert with honors and gifts, then welcomed firefighter Josh Marvin, a familiar face to the family.
Tyler gave Emmert an American flag that has hung for years in Main Station No. 21's training room, as well as his "Emmert" name tag and his deputy chief helmet, with "going away" notes from department staff.
He also handed Emmert a challenge coin.
