Strack Retires After 25 Years of Service

September 5, 2017

Cherokee County firefighter, Jim Strack, was recognized last Friday due to his retirement from the Cherokee Country Fire and Emergency Services.

Strack officially retired on November 12th of 2016 and immediately began working for Morris Shea as their Site Safety Manager. Strack’s new job keeps him on the road and last Friday was the first opportunity that he had to receive his retirement award. 

Cherokee County Fire Chief, Tim Prather, thanked Strack for his 25 years of service to the citizens of Cherokee County and presented him 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. Cherokee County Assistant Chief, Eddie Robinson, Field Operations Chief, Shane West, EMS Chief, Danny West and Division Chief, Dean Floyd and several of his co-workers were on-hand for the presentation.

Strack’s wife, Sandra, and his daughter, Katie, were also in attendance to see Jim receive his award.

Jim currently resides in Holly Springs.
