After thirty-seven years of selfless public service, Chief Jim Irving was recongnized today by Southern Marin Fire District personnel, friends, and other regional fire service partners as he completes his last active duty shift with the District. On duty staff lowered the colors at Station 9 and presented them to Chief Irving in recognition of his service and final duty shift to the District. The days events were at times festive and celebratory, and at times emotionally charged as the significance of this occasion was felt by all. The District, and Marin County Fire Service Community is exceedingly grateful to Chief Irving and his wife Trudy, for their dedication and love of this organization, the Marin County region and the fire service community. Best wishes to Chief Irving and Trudy as they embark on a new adventure.
