This is the NYC EMS as it was before the merger with FDNY. A group of people trained to save lives in the largest city in America.
This is their story in Part 1 of a five part series as told by A&E. They often worked under some very difficult conditions. They saved lives and were the doctors in the streets of New York.
Site member "memory master", aka Charlie T., you were a part of it, so "this one's for you".
