In Quincy at Tuesday night's commission meeting, Frank Springer was recognized for his dedication to the emergency medical service. The commission says Springer started as a paramedic in Gadsden County before they had a paramedic program.

Springer who began his career in 1982 says it was hard to find his way around back then--but he was accomplishing a mission. "That was the important thing. We know that we had lives out there to save and we had to save them with what resources we had. We had to get the job done." said Springer.

Springer will officially start his retirement next week and he says he hopes to play more golf and get into fishing.

    This is horrible of WCTV to immediately put this article in the archives before anyone can see it. I just happened upon it searching for something else. Mr. Springer was an oustanding asset to Gadsden Co EMS. I have known him for many many years and helping others has always been his passion. He will be greatly missed. I wish you the very best of luck in your retirement Franklin. Enjoy that golfing and fishing, you deserve it!!
