MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - A bitter-sweet goodbye at the Midland Fire Department.

After 30 plus years, David Hickman is hanging up his helmet and boots.

Friends and co-workers gathered to say good-bye at the Central Fire Station on Friday afternoon.

Hickman says he is grateful to have served the midland community.

Now that he is retired, he plans on writing a children's book on fire safety.

The city has not announced who his replacement will be.
