He has accomplished that childhood dream by touching many lives over his time of service as an EMT at Bradley County.
“Mr. Bradford is representative of the pride and compassion that is exhibited by all of our EMT and paramedics here at Bradley County EMS. He has been in the business of caring for people for a long time and is well deserving of this award,” said Danny Lawson, EMS chief.
