Noblesville firefighter retires after 36 Years
Earlier this month, Lt. John Melson of the Noblesville Fire Dept. stepped off the truck for the final time.
After 36 dedicated years of service, Melson officially retired. In his farewell, Melson said, “To all that wear the badge, I wish you a safe career. I am honored to have been one of you.”
“Retirements such as John’s provide a mix of emotions,” NFD Fire Chief Greg Wyant said. “On one hand, it is great to see him reach this goal, on the other, albeit selfish, we hate to lose such a talented and experienced man. John’s presence at NFD will be missed.”
