A Mid-Michigan assistant fire chief was honored after 50 years of service.
Just a couple of weeks ago Lyle Cousins, with the Thomas Township Fire Department, hung up his helmet for the last time.
The department celebrated his 50 years of service with a party.
Cousins said he’s happy he was able to serve in the community he loved for so long.
“Everything went the way we had expected or hoped it would go," Cousins said. "And we just stayed here, there was no reason to move on to another department. I was very happy being where I was at and everybody gave the support.”
TV5 would like to thank Cousins for his service and wish him a happy retirement.
