Nebraska State Fire Marshal John Falgione is retiring at the end of the month.

Gov. Dave Heineman announced Monday that the 65-year-old is leaving the state cabinet post after more than 35 years in fire service.

During Falgione's tenure, the state Fire Marshal's office expanded a state fire prevention program aimed at students, contributed to an overhaul of Nebraska's fireworks laws, and developed a series of online applications for permits and licenses.

Falgione was appointed by Heineman in 2007. He previously has served as a deputy state fire marshal in the investigations, code enforcement, and flammable liquid storage divisions.

His final day will be Dec. 28.
