Albany’s Fire Chief Hanging Up His Hat

Albany's fire chief is hanging up his hat after more than three decades with the department.

Chief Michael Dunn came around to all the fire houses Thursday to say goodbye to all the men and women he has led for the past five years as chief.

The 57-year-old has been with the fire department for 34-years and four-months, and he says he would do it all over again in a minute.

“It's gone quick,” Chief Dunn says. “It's really amazing how fast your career goes. When you come on, you think, 20-years is forever, but it really does go by quick.”

Dunn says he has seen a lot of changes since he started back in 1972, especially when it comes to safety equipment.

He says he will miss the camaraderie the most.

Dunn plans to spend more time with his family now that he is retiring.
