“My uncle, Firefighter Kevin O’Rourke #Rescue2 was one of the 343 members to make the Supreme Sacrifice on September 11, 2001. He is the reason I am here today. This Department has always been a dream of mine ever since I was a little kid. I had the time of my life during the Academy and it made me really love Emergency Medicine. The instructors prepared us for high stress situations and have been a huge asset to all of us. I have always wanted to help others and this job seemed right up my alley,” says #FDNY Probationary EMT Andrew O’Rourke, who graduates today from the FDNY EMS Academy.

“I was inspired to join the Navy after the attacks on September 11th. This is my city and I wanted to feel like I could protect it. During my time, I did two tours in the Persian Gulf – Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom – and received several medals for my accomplishments. It was amazing and an incredible honor. I knew after that experience, I wanted to join the FDNY. It was my calling. I wanted to do more for the community that I grew up in. During one of my ride-alongs, I had a ROSC (Return of Spontaneous Circulation) save. This was my first save and I have my instructors to thank for that. Because of them I felt prepared and confident. It was great watching the EMTs and Paramedics in action. They talked me through everything. It was amazing knowing that this individual was able to get another chance at life because of us. I wanted to make a positive change in someone’s life, and this job is the best way for me to do that,” says #FDNY Probationary EMT and @usnavy Veteran Gina Liandros, who graduates today from the FDNY EMS Academy.

“It was such a privilege to learn from the instructors as the EMS Academy. They are so knowledgeable and my classmates and I learned so much from them. Overall, the Academy was a great experience. My squad and I would all meet up for review sessions and we put in the time on the weekends as well. They were such a big help to me. My father, Paul Cresci is retired FDNY Chief of Safety and he is the reason I wanted to be a part of this Department. His father was also in the Department so it runs in the family. I wanted a job where I could help people every day and be a part of something bigger than myself,” says #FDNY Paul Cresci, who graduates today as Academic Achiever of his class.

“I worked hard with my squad while training at the Academy and I feel confident in my skills because of the great instructors that taught us the material. I’ve been surrounded by brave first responders my entire life. This job goes back four generations in my family, and my father, Battalion Chief Eugene Marmann #Battalion52 definitely influenced my decision to join the Department,” says #FDNY Probationary EMT Thomas Marmann, who graduates today as Academic Achiever of his class.
