Connie Brandl with the plaque she was presented at her retirement party.

A retirement party was held for Connie Brandl on Tuesday, October 23rd at the Luther Keith Emergency Services Center. Her family members and EMT co-workers were present. There was a lot of good food and good fellowship!! The EMTs surprised Connie and picked her up in the ambulance and returned her home in the same manner. (Her neighbors were a little confused!) Connie was presented with a large picture that honored her dedication and service from her co-workers. Her family also showered her with gifts! Connie retired after 29 years of service with Greeley County Ambulance. She took the EMT class in 1989. Connie’s father, Bill, was one of the founding members of our ambulance service. He was her inspiration to volunteer her service as well. After getting her EMT certification, Connie decided to take another big step and become an RN (Registered Nurse). She also became a certified CPR Instructor. Connie served our community as an RN and EMT until health issues interfered. The level of dedication required to basically be on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days out of the year for 29 years is something to be admired! Connie was a true volunteer, never receiving any pay for her work with Greeley County EMS. She will be missed by all of her fellow EMTs. Connie will continue to teach CPR and Senior Fall Prevention Classes. — Chris Baber, Greeley County Ambulance Director
