If those "boys" probably calling them hoodlums would be a better description, are ever caught (obviously very unlikely) they should all be tried for attempted murder!

They would probably get charged with terrorism, in all seriousness.
Truth be told, all you would hear is "Boys will be boys." Nothing will happen. Unfortunately we all surmise it already.

EMS Operations / Re: 3/30/20 65-2 Message EMS Fall Back Step 3

I can recall NYC blizzards where we had National Guard Troops with trucks transporting patients and assisting snowbound EMS rigs as well, then there were the hurricanes and last but not least at all, 9/11. I am sorry if I sound bitter but throughout all these instances and more, the EMS personnel have always come through, did their best and were never shown gratitude as a whole. It's almost like the City thinks of them as a dispensable commodity. "Use 'em until we lose 'em" and then hire somebody else. Again, I apologize but sometimes what I hear, what I see and what I read just makes me sick and I have to vent to folks who would understand.

I couldn't agree more. EMS has always gotten the "shit end of the stick" and has always made due and got the job done. When/If life every gains some sense of normalcy I pray that people will see EMS for the true medical professionals they have always been and PAY them as such.

I recd this from a friend today in regard to Al.......QUOTE..It is with extreme sadness that I have to inform you of the passing of Retired B.C. Al "Albie" Petrocelli that occurred this morning on Staten Island. He had been sick for the last three weeks and fought a valiant battle. Al, and his wife Ginger, lost their son Mark on 9-11. Their other Son, Al, is a Battalion Chief in Batt. 21. For everyone of us who knew Al personally and loved his positive attitude and great sense of humor, we all lost a very good loyal friend. In addition to being a Very Proud U.S. Army Combat Veteran, who served in Viet Nam, the FDNY lost a respected fire officer who worked in many of the busiest companies. Al was truly one of the 'Bravest of the Brave" .
Al's devotion to Our Lord and the Blessed Mother guarantees that he has already been welcomed into the Kingdom of Heaven.
