Imagine the stories he could tell
Wow I am sure this guy has seen quite a bit in his time.

Here I go, opening up that can of worms.....
90 is a pretty darn old age, is he able to do this anymore?
How many other professions have 90 year olds still doing the grunt work?
That being said, I will be the FIRST in line with a case of his drink of choice, and listen to the old war stories.AJ, MICP, FireMedic

Regardless of that, it's important to note that Hemingway, SC has a population of 500. I imagine that your idea or my idea of what a firefighter does is somewhat different than the reality in Hemingway. In a community that size -- where everyone knows ol' Herbert -- they're probably glad to keep the man who knows everything about the department around. Besides, if he's been around longer than some of them have been alive... who is going to have the cojones to show him the door?

There is no reason to get rid of the guy. Living in the town of 500 its not like they are getting a large call volume to begin with. And the article said sometimes he runs the ENGINE thats one truck. Theres just so much to learn from guys like these.
