Recently, one of the Polk County’s most tenured EMTs retired from service and was honored by the Polk County Commissioners, along with several other employees who reached milestones in their employment.
Darrin Cronan, who joined as one of Polk County’s First Responders in January 1987, retired after 31 years of service to the community.
Cronan was among the first paramedic classes in the state to serve in Polk County and was also one of the first National Registered Paramedics to serve full-time in Polk County.
Cronan wasn’t the only employee recognized by the Board of Commissioners during its December meeting, as the group also honored employees who had reached milestone years (five, 10, 15 and so on) of their employment.
These employees, who the Board of Commissioners consider to be the backbone of our local government, are much appreciated for the time, energy, and service they provide to the community.
