NYC EMS as it once was
« on: February 11, 2017, 08:59:09 PM »
 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".

I thank you "NFD." Brought back some memories as I knew some and worked directly with others. Those white shirts sure took a beating, ex: wearing a white shirt while working on the subway tracks?  But yes, those were the days!

 Continuing with the story of "NYC EMS as it once was", we continue to follow these dedicated life savors of the largest city in the country. They very seldom received any recognition for the job they did and the thousands of lives they saved.

 They are hero's - no doubt about that. Seven days a week, 24 hours a day, throughout the five boros of New York City. These are the kinds of people who were out there for all of us in our most desperate time of need.

 I respect them for the job they've done and I continue to respect the EMTs and Paramedics of the FDNY/EMS today.
