The City of Midland has honored their 2022 Police Officer and Firefighter of the year.

Officer Steve Pomranky was named the City’s 2022 Police Officer of the year, while Midland Firefighter Ed Peake was given the Firefighter of the year award.

Pomranky joined the Midland Police Department in 2001, serving as a leader on the S.W.A.T team, a field training officer, and instructor in defensive tactics and firearms in his 21 years with the department.

Firefighter Peake joined the Fire Department in 2006, serving as a truck operator and lieutenant when needed. According to the City, Peake has rescued 3 people from burning buildings since joining, including an elderly woman with diabetes during a house fire earlier this year, and his experience and quick-thinking helped to limit damage during a commercial fire in July.

The two recipients were honored by the Midland Area Community Foundation at a ceremony earlier this year.
