On Monday night, the Public Safety Ladies Auxiliary of Worth County hosted a banquet to award first responders for their hard working during Hurricane Michael.
A first responder from each department was awarded employee of the year.
Auxiliary President Betty Dorsey says this banquet was to give back to the first responders who take care of the community every day.
During natural disasters, the auxiliary group cooks meals for Worth County's first responders to thank them for their hard work.
During the banquet, first responders, county leaders and two businesses were recognized.
Worth County Sheriff Don Whitaker says the county has come a long way since Hurricane Michael.
According to Whitaker, all of the roads have been cleared, all power has been restored and homes are still in the process of being repaired.
He adds recovery couldn't have been possible without the community's help.
"With the devastation that we had, full recovery doesn't happen quick, but with everybody pulling together, we're getting there fast and everybody is looking out for each other so yeah, we're getting there," said Whitaker.
Dorsey says the auxiliary group is still looking for volunteers because they function on a volunteer and donation basis.
