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.
