NewHampshire.com reports that 58-year-old Brentwood Fire Chief Kevin Lemoine has decided that after 38 years of serving the public- it’s time to hang it up.

Lemoine is anything but your average Fire Chief. Lemoine was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 28 years ago and has spent the last 12 years serving the community from a wheelchair. When NewHampshire.com asked him about his reasons for reitring, Lemoine responded…….

I can’t do the job the way it should be done. The chief’s job is an important job and I don’t want to bring it down trying to do it when I can’t do it……Going to fires isn’t tough because once I’m there I usually stay out front with my vehicle, but getting there, it takes a little longer for me to get going….

Cheif Lemoine has held the position since 2001.  Read the full story HERE.
