Twenty years after first putting on the bunker gear of the Pensacola Fire Department, Ginny Cranor is set to make history.
Cranor is up for promotion from her current rank as Battalion Chief, to becoming the first woman fire chief in the department’s 208 year history.
“I feel very honored to be the first female that’s been chosen to do this,” said Cranor.
Her career in the fire services began after training as an emergency medical technician in 1993. She earned a nursing degree from the University of West Florida in 2012.
