Pennie Lamanac, a firefighter with Cherokee County Fire & Emergency Services, was recognized last week at a retirement ceremony held in her honor at the fire administrative offices in Canton.
Fire Chief, Tim Prather, thanked Lamanac for her 17 years of service to the citizens of Cherokee County and presented her with a “bugle” award. The bugle or speaking trumpet is a reference to a megaphone like device that was used in the early days of the fire service.
Lamanac came to work at the fire department on February 3, 2003, as a firefighter/paramedic and was promoted to the rank of Sergeant on May 18th, 2008. In 2009, Lamanac became a Fire Training Officer and stayed in that position until November of 2014 when she transferred to the Fire Marshal’s office to become a Fire Safety Educator. When Lamanac retired, she was a Fire Inspector for the county. She held that position since March of 2018.
Our sincere thanks to Pennie Lamanac for her 17 year of service to the citizens of Cherokee County. We wish her many happy years of retirement!
