INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Officials say the second-longest serving firefighter in Indianapolis Fire Department history is hanging up his helmet.
IFD says Chief Dan Hansman was hired in August of 1966. Throughout his years with the department, the now 70-year-old says he’s seen it go from “adequate” to a “national leader” in training and health and safety.
In his 48 years on the force, officials say he has taken off work for surgeries, but he has never called in sick.
He retires as a battalion chief.
