    We get a leaf to place on your tunique & when you retire, the Assocation usually buys something to the member.

    We give a plaque for every 5 years of service.(5,10,15,20,25, etc)
    We have given a plaque for however many years after 10 when they quit or move onto a full time dept IF they leave in good standing. For the past 2 chiefs who retired the Association purchased gold "retired chief" badges for them.

    As we are a paid-on call service, a bounty is paid on completion of 10, 15, 20 & 25 (the maximum we can do),years service. The payment runs from around 500 up to 2000 on completion of your final year. After that comes retirement and in exchange for handing back your pager you get a framed certificate from the Chief in recognition of your years of service.

    Everyone gets a framed certificate and years of service pin for every five years. Usually when someone leaves/retires, depending on how long he/she has been on, we will get them some kind of gift.

    When my dad retired after 23 years, he was given his helmet, with a gold leaf parade front, a plque with is badge and name pin mounted on it, and a plaque with his years of service and an axe on it. When my brother left after 10 years, he was given his helmet and a plaque with city patch, emt patch, his badge, name pin, and years of service pin.

    Well, we do the same, a star for every five years and a $50.00 Gift Certificate for each benchmark as well.

    At Retirement, the city Pays for a Retirement party and our Association pays for a Shadow Box with momentos collected over the years including all thier Badges that is given to the emplyee.

    We also give each retireee a life membership to the association and are always envited to all of our association parties and functions.
