Dougherty County Commission recognizes Paramedic of the Year
October 29, 2007
Dougherty County -- In your time of need paramedics are often the first to respond.
And Monday at the Dougherty County Commission meeting the Paramedic of the Year was recognized.
The Exchange club along with Dougherty County E.M.S honored Sam Allen with the title.
Allen has been a Dougherty County paramedic for 15 years, but this is the first time he has been awarded.
He says its an honor to be rewarded for a job he loves.
"Everyday is different. You never know what you are going to come across. We work on infants to patients over 100 years-old. Its just rewarding to see people out that you were able to help in their time of need," said Allen.
This is the third year that the Exchange Club has honored a Paramedic of the Year.
