Moss Vale Fire and Rescue Captain Renato D Adam will be hanging up the boots this Sunday after being in the job for almost 37 years.
Renato who's known to locals as " Ronny " was born and bred in Moss Vale.
He says he's had to deal with some pretty spectacular fires over that time including the Reekies tyres fire in Bowral most recently and the Clint's Crazy Bargains fire at Goulburn back in 1999.
An official farewell is taking place for Ronny at Moss Vale Golf Club on Thursday September 27 at 7pm
This has to be done by September 20.
