Afterwards, Golden was presented with a plaque which held the official proclamation and he spoke briefly to those in attendance.

"I couldn't have gotten this done without some great fire district boards, past and present," Golden said. "Some great firemen, some great officers who are here today, who are going to take over the reins. Everything here, I couldn't have gotten it done without those guys."
