Commissioner of Police and CEO, Fire and Emergency Services John Mc Roberts presented Dezi with his 40-years service clasp and medal in front of the appreciative graduates.

After completing his recruit training in 1970, Dezi Carolin was posted to the Darwin Emergency Response area.

Fire-fighter Carolin has served at the three Darwin Fire Stations and like all of the other long serving members served at Nightcliff, Daly Street & Winnellie Fire Stations before they were either decommissioned or blown away by Cyclone Tracey.

“I’m really pleased to bloody get it. 40 years is a long time for a local bloke in one job and it proves there should be more local lads employed.” Mr Carolin said

Fire-fighter Carolin is currently serving on B Watch at the Darwin Fire Station.
