Captain Eddie Fielder Retires

Captain Fielder circa 1994

Captain Eddie Fielder is retiring today after 23 years of dedication to the department. Eddie's most recent assignment has been as company officer at station 13 on C-Shift (my Captain). Eddie was hired on September 17, 1984 and his retirement date will be November 1, 2007. We wish him a healthy and happy retirement. He will be relocating to Myrtle Beach with his wife, Cathy.

The guys at 13 will be sending him off with a steak dinner tonight. Feel free to call or stop by to say goodbye. We will be having a retirement party for Eddie on Wednesday, October 10th at Hooters at 7pm. Plan on attending.

I will have more as the day goes on.

Wormy, you old dog. We have been friends for years before either of us joined the FD. You did good. It was truly a pleasure working with you through all the years. I wish you well in your new digs, and please, don't be a stranger. You are going to love retirement.

Take care, old friend.
