Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The Fargo Fire Department said goodbye to its longtime fire marshal today.

Norm Scott said he was overwhelmed at all the people who showed up to wish him luck and say "thanks."

Scott has worked with the department for 44 years, serving the past 26 as fire marshal.

He says he stuck with it because he enjoyed working to prevent fires.

Scott started the "Learn Not To Burn" program for area students years ago.

Norm Scott/Retiring Fire Marshall: "The most rewarding part of being a member of the fire department is the ability to help people, especially through hard times. Because that's when we see people, is during emergencies, most of the time."

Scott's replacement, Ryan Erickson, will be sworn-in Monday.
