Fallon Ambulance Service in Quincy honors two Plymouth residents for longevity of service, at company’s 90th anniversary celebration
QUINCY and PLYMOUTH, MA, ISSUED OCTOBER 10, 2013…Plymouth residents Scott Souther and Jonathan Rzasa were among 30 employees of Fallon Ambulance Service (www.fallonambulance.com) to be honored for their record of accomplishment and longevity. Souther, a 26-year veteran, and Rzasa, with 23 years, were commended by Fallon Ambulance Service CEO Tim Fallon at the company’s 90th anniversary, held earlier this month at the Steel n’ Rye Restaurant in Milton.
The setting for the celebration is an interesting blend of present and past for the Fallon team. Now a thriving restaurant, the 95 Eliot Street location for many years served as the headquarters for Fallon Ambulance Service before the third-generation, privately-held family ambulance firm relocated to Quincy.
And, noting the ‘family business’ status of Fallon Ambulance, Rzasa’s father, John Rzasa of Hanson, was also honored at the ceremony for 48 years of service to Fallon Ambulance.
Fallon Ambulance Service CEO Timothy Fallon said, “In a society where most people statistically work for seven different employers during their careers, we are very fortunate to have Scott and Jonathan who both exemplify such a strong commitment to his company. We are a better organization for their being part of our Fallon family.”
“Many of us who have been part of the Fallon Ambulance Service family for many years well remember working at 95 Eliot Street and it was a great homecoming – a chance to reflect on where our company has gone, and to see our old home in a new light,” said Peter Racicot, Senior Vice President.
In addition to its longtime employees, a number of local and state officials were on hand to congratulate Fallon Ambulance on its anniversary and its many contributions to the region. Area officials who helped celebrate the company’s 90 years of service included Weymouth Mayor Sue Kay; State Representatives Bruce Ayers, Tackey Chan; Brian Dempsey; and Ronald Mariano. Additionally, State Senators Kenneth Donnelly and John Keenan attended, as did Braintree Mayor Joseph Sullivan, and a number of area town selectmen and local officials.
Fallon Ambulance continues to maintain strong ties with the Town of Milton, and is that municipality’s 9-1-1 EMS provider. From Fallon’s headquarters in Quincy, it provides 9-1-1 service to Quincy, Milton, Braintree, Weymouth, Brookline and Dedham.
