Pensacola Fire Chief Saves Life

Chief Ginny Cranor has been a supporter of CFT from the start and attended most all of the conferences on Pensacola Beach in the early years. She would even bring her company and those she was mentoring. She has always been committed to the Fire Service and being a student. She became a paramedic even though Pensacola FD was not ALS, just because she wanted to be her best and provide the best to those she serves. Great Job Chief Cranor.
