In the fall of 1989 Mike Ewing be­came a mem­ber of the Springville Vol­un­teer Fire Depart­ment. On May 9, 2014 his of­fi­cial ser­vice to the cit­i­zens of the city he loves came to a close as he re­tired. He was hon­ored at an open house at the fire sta­tion on May 28th. Mem­bers of the fire depart­ment and Mike’s fam­ily and friends were there to ex­tend their grat­i­tude for the time and de­vo­tion he has shown in this as­sign­ment.

Mike ex­pressed his love to the mem­bers of the depart­ment who have truly be­come his broth­ers. There is a bond that can’t be bro­ken among the fire­men who bravely serve this com­mu­nity.

Mike ex­pressed that he “would walk into a burn­ing build­ing for any of them.” It was then men­tioned that he has in­deed done that.

Many cit­i­zens of Springville can also say that he has walked into their burn­ing homes to pro­tect their fam­i­lies and property. He has done this be­cause of his love for people and his love for the great city of Springville.

Af­ter leav­ing the fire sta­tion with all the fire­men lined up to wave good-bye, Mike and his wife, Sharon were given a ride to their home in the fire truck with lights blaz­ing and sirens blar­ing.

That was a bit­ter sweet jour­ney up Cen­ter Street. A very spe­cial part of that ride was that the driver was their son, Daniel who car­ries on the legacy as a proud Springville Vol­un­teer Fire­fighter.
