 SHEPHERDSVILLE -- When Bullitt County government inherited an emergency medical service 25 years ago, Bridgett Etherton was there.

Mike Phillips, who has been the Bullitt County EMS director since its inception, said his friendship with Etherton goes back even further.

So on a day in which she was honored on her service and her retirement, it was an emotional moment for Phillips.

“She’s been my sounding board,” said Phillips. “She’s been my venting board.”
