On July 28, FIAI Vice President and Wayne Township Fire Marshal Randy Gulley retired from public service during a recognition event at the Wayne Township Fire Department. Randy was celebrated by his family, co-workers, and a notably large presence of his peers from across Indiana.

Many code enforcement and public educators across Indiana have grown to appreciate Randy and his unending determination to stay on top of legislative and code changes that affect how we do our jobs. Randy's well-deserved retirement will leave a hard-to-fill hole in the FIAI and Indiana's fire prevention community.

Enjoy your retirement, Randy!
