After 29 Years, San Francisco Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White Retires.

San Francisco's longtime fire chief, Joanne Hayes-White, hung up her helmet for good Sunday night.

After 29 years with the San Francisco Fire Department, Chief Hayes-White is retiring.

Hayes-White spent her last hours with the fire department with family and 700 friends and colleagues at the Irish Cultural Center.

From first female chief to first openly gay chief, at midnight Chief Hayes-White passes the baton to Chief Jeanine Nicholson, who has been with the San Francisco Fire Department for 25 years.

Congratulations Joanne! You deserve it!
