Longest-serving Peachtree City employee set to retire

Peachtree City’s longest-serving employee is retiring from his post at the end of January.

Ron Mundy has spent 36 years training hundreds of firefighters in the city’s Fire and Rescue Department, some of whom still serve there. An Indiana native, Mundy relocated to Peachtree City and began as a volunteer for the fire department in 1983 when it had only three full-time employees; it now has more than 60. Mundy’s role as a fire training officer included positions as a sergeant, lieutenant and battalion chief.

Mayor Vanessa Fleisch formally recognized his 35th anniversary with the city at a City Council meeting last June, noting his role in preparing other public safety officers. Said Mundy, “You can never train enough for a job that can kill you.”
