SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV)- Sioux City Fire-Rescue received a piece of their own history Tuesday.
Jim Jung of Sioux City donated the badge of former fire chief George M. Kellogg to fire officials at Fire Station 4. Kellogg served as Sioux City Fire Chief from 1889-1939.
His tenure of 50 years is the longest in American History, according to the United States Department of Labor. "About the time of this badge, Sioux City was starting to boom," said Jung. "It could do no wrong. There was big growth. We were a gateway to the west and things like that, so this badge represents that history. Plus, a chief that spent 50 years as a chief."
The badge is believed to be from early in Kellogg's tenure as fire chief. It will now stay in a display at Fire Station 4.
