Happy Trails After Over 39 Years

Yesterday, September 18, was Master Technician Mike Macario’s last day with Fairfax County Fire and Rescue after over 39 years serving the residents of Fairfax County.

Many shift mates past and present stopped by Fire Station 5, Franconia, to wish Mike all the best in retirement.

Some interesting tidbits about Mike:

  • Years of Service: 8/1/77 – 9/18/16 (39+ years)
  • 41st Recruit School
  • Last assignment: Driver of Engine 5
  • More time driving in reverse than most drivers have driven forward
  • More time in the department than most in the department have been alive
  • All around great guy

THANK YOU Master Technician Mike Macario for your many years of dedicated service to both the public we serve but also the members of this department. May your retirement be filled with great happiness and health.
