Dayton City Council recognized fire captain Adam Hall at their meeting this month as he retires from the Fire Department of Bellevue-Dayton after 26 years of service.
Mayor Ben Baker presented Hall with the key to the city of Dayton, describing him as a kind individual, a good friend, and involved in leadership in the department and the community.
“It’s definitely been an honor and a privilege to serve Dayton and Bellevue for my entire career,” Hall said after receiving the key. “Since I graduated high school I’ve been on the fire department in Bellevue and Dayton, so I definitely appreciate the award.”
When he made the decision to retire, Hall said he wanted to make sure that the department is taken care of and moving in a positive direction.
“For the last few years you guys have definitely showed that the Fire Department is a priority, and I think it’s in really good hands as the city is growing faster than I thought it would in my career,” he said.
Several members of the Dayton Fire Department attended the recognition service.
