People are stopping us on the street and letting us know how grateful they are for our work. It’s very touching and these small gestures really mean something to us. It goes a long way. Our job is to protect the community and it feels like they’re looking out for us as well,” says #FDNY EMT Manuel Melendez, #Station39, a 10-year FDNY veteran who is one of thousands of EMS members serving on the front lines of the city's response to COVID-19.⁣⁣ EMT Melendez says, “My station has always been close, we’re a family. We’re all leaning on each other during this time and the comradery is even stronger now. We will always be there for each other, just as our community is.”⁣

Repost from @fdny using @RepostRegramApp - “This is truly an honor to represent the Department during EMS Week. I honestly wouldn’t want to be anywhere else during this time in history. I’m grateful I can have an impact and help New Yorkers who need us the most. When I took the oath at graduation, I understood what that meant and this is what we are trained to do, to help people. FDNY EMS is a family. I have a great relationship with the members of my station. We have always been close, but this pandemic has brought us even closer. We’re here for each other and we are helping each other get through this. I’m forever grateful for them,” says #FDNY EMT Michael Watenberg, #Station4, who is one of seven members featured on this year’s FDNY EMS Week Poster.⁣⁣

Each year during EMS Week, the FDNY unveils a poster which is intended to raise greater awareness about the life-saving work of FDNYs EMTs and Paramedics. This year’s FDNY-developed poster’s theme is “Ready Today, Preparing for Tomorrow,” and it focuses on the EMS response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020 poster features seven members of the FDNY Emergency Medical Service, pictured as they responded in their assigned PPE to calls throughout New York City. Each day during EMS Week, each of these members have shared in their own words why they are proud to serve as a member of FDNY EMS.⁣⁣

Repost from @fdny using @RepostRegramApp - "It's nice to be chosen to represent the Department, especially during this time in history. It's always nice to be recognized. This is our job and we take it very seriously. We love what we do and we're here for the community and for each other at all times. That's what makes this job so amazing. During this time, we are coming together as a family. Our communities are looking out for us too and that brings up our morale as well. We're doing the best we possibly can," says #FDNY Paramedic Kimberley Laychock, #Division5, a 21-year veteran of the Department who is one of seven members featured on this year's FDNY EMS Week Poster.⁣

Posted @withregram • @fdny “Being promoted means so much to me. It feels extremely gratifying to be given this opportunity. I worked very hard in order to reach this goal and it was worth all of the effort that went into it. It is important to never lose sight of your goals. In my new position, I look forward to learning new aspects of the job. I hope to seek the guidance from other experienced Deputy Chiefs so I too can be a successful leader in the FDNY. I want to make my family, coworkers and all those who believed in me proud. Seeing my EMS brothers and sisters working on the frontlines each and every day during this pandemic has been extremely motivating and inspiring. EMS in general is a very demanding profession, so when you add an event of this magnitude to the mix, it becomes that much more challenging. Being promoted during EMS Week made it that much more special and memorable for me. It’s an awesome gift,” says #FDNY Deputy Chief Farooq Muhammad, who was promoted today at the FDNY Officers Promotion Ceremony. The closed ceremony was held at the Fire Academy on Randalls Island without friends or family in attendance, and social distancing was practiced throughout. ...

Posted @withregram • @fdny “I am incredibly excited for this opportunity. I’ve been working hard towards this goal and I’m honored to be a part of this incredible team. I’m ready to move EMS forward and my new position will give me the ability to influence changes in a positive direction. During this time, we are filled with mixed emotions. I hate to celebrate during a pandemic, but I’m also grateful to represent EMS because we’ve all stepped up to the plate in a big way during this time,” says #FDNY Assistant Chief Jonathan Pistilli, a 36-year veteran of the Department who was promoted today at the FDNY Officers Promotion Ceremony. The closed ceremony was held at the Fire Academy on Randalls Island without friends or family in attendance, and social distancing was practiced throughout. ...

Posted @withregram • @fdny "This day is bittersweet, because it's difficult to enjoy this promotion when the world is in this state. But we are professionals and we do the best we can. As a Battalion Chief, your mission is to keep everyone healthy and safe, and to make sure that the members go home to their families at night. During this pandemic, that means that we are following directions from the Department of Health, the Mayor's Office, and the Fire Department, so that we can make sure that the men and women who serve this city go home safe to their families," says #FDNY Battalion Chief Christopher M. Ganci, one of 47 FDNY Officers promoted today in a closed ceremony at the Fire Academy on Randalls Island. Chief Ganci follows in the footsteps of his father, Chief of Department Peter Ganci, who was one of 343 FDNY members to make the Supreme Sacrifice on September 11, 2001. Chief Ganci says, "It's odd to hear 'Chief Ganci' because I associate that name with my father. He's Chief Ganci and I'm his son, and I'll never be in that league, but I hope to be remembered as a good chief and as a good officer." #NeverForget ...
