GREENVILLE, Ohio — Spirit EMS celebrated Captain Todd Marburger and his long tenure this month.

His colleagues surprised him with the recognition of his 10,000th day as an EMT. Marburger has been certified as an EMT in Ohio for more than 27 years.

“I never expected to be recognized for doing my job, and doing something that I love to do,” he said. “It was a good feeling and kind of embarrassing at the same time. I was happy to see all of my family, Spirit family, and friends there. It shows the support that they have and how caring they are.”

Spirit EMS’ president praised Marburger.

“The world of EMS today is very hard, and the longevity of EMS workers in the wake of recent times is becoming very short-lived,” Spirit EMS President/CEO Brian K. Hathaway said in a news release. “This type of longevity is becoming unheard of. It’s especially rare for someone who has visions of continuing their EMS career for several more years to come. This is a great milestone to celebrate, and we are forever grateful for Todd’s continued perseverance as an EMS practitioner and leader in our organization.”
