Tucson's Fire Chief is retiring today after 29 years in the department and six years as it's chief. Chief Jim Critchley is proud of the department's history and his role in forming its future. He talked with us in the small museum at Tucson Fire Headquarters. He says he wants firefighters to always remember the 136 years of tradition and service the museum represents. "The Fire Department has been here since 1881 serving the citizens of Tucson and I want everybody to remember that there's a long line behind us and a long line in front of us of people that will do this--of people that will take care of the community like we do."
