Dale Miekes, of Northwood, never fantasized about becoming a fireman as a young boy. Now, some 50 years later, Miekes has to restrain himself from answering the alarm.

“I was asked to join the department in 1963,” Miekes said with a chuckle. “They really needed the help and they said it would just be temporary. As a kid, it never entered my mind that I wanted to be a firefighter. Now, 50 years later, I am still helping them. I retired June 1 and when I hear the sirens, I still want to go.”

He, wife Heather and children Ella and Evan moved to Oregon in 2007 and bought a house on Robindale, in the old Eastmoreland area, bound by Navarre and Starr avenues and Wheeling Street.
