Amber Willard GLENDALE -- Richard Hinz almost spent his adult life as a salesman instead of a firefighter. Fortunately, the draw of the latter profession -- in part from years of watching his father's service -- was stronger. "I wanted more meaningful work. With the Fire Department, there was an element of adventure and excitement along with what you do," said Hinz, who took a pay cut to come to the Glendale Fire Department in 1964. Hinz spent 10 years as a firefighter at what is now Station 26 on North Brand Boulevard before being promoted to an engineer and later fire captain.
