Let's celebrate #FDNY family today! #EMTs Merisa Simons and Frank Cicciarello were in the fourth graduating class in FDNY history in 1996, and were assigned to #Station43 in #ConeyIsland. They remained friends over the years, and on Feb. 12, each of their sons graduated as Probationary EMTs from the FDNY EMS Academy. Even more special is that their sons, EMTs Brandon Simons and Anthony Cicciarello, will be serving at Station 43 as well, following in their parents’ footsteps. Congratulations to these two first responder families! ...

Repost from @fdny: “This is such a noble profession. The instructors at the Academy were incredibly helpful. I studied a lot during my commute to and from class every day with my carpool. They helped me a lot. I am excited to get out there and help people,” says #FDNY Probationary EMT Alex Cotton, who graduates today as Valedictorian of his class. ...

Posted @withregram • @fdny “I wanted to give back to the city that has given me so much. I was born and raised here and I wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself. I am currently a US Navy Reservist, and I have a passion for medicine, so this career seems like the perfect fit. The Navy helped me get through the FDNY EMS academy. The structure was familiar and I was able to gain some better habits that will allow me to be successful in the Department,” says #FDNY Probationary EMT and @usnavy Reservist Anika Guy, who graduates today from the FDNY EMS Academy. ...

Posted @withregram • @fdny “I love EMS because every day is different. It gives you the opportunity to learn something new every time you are called to help someone. The instructors at the Academy went above and beyond in order to make sure we all understood the material. I’m looking forward to learning and experiencing more on the job. I am honored to be a part of this family,” says #FDNY Probationary EMT Brendan Ryan, who graduates today as Valedictorian of his class. ...

Posted @withregram • @fdny “I have been on this job for 14 years. During that time, I have been honored to attend two FDNY Second Chance Ceremonies, where I was reunited with former patients who had survived cardiac arrest because of the emergency medical care provided by me and my coworkers. It was an incredibly humbling experience. Seeing them and knowing they were there because of our hard work was an amazing feeling. These experiences encouraged me to move up in the ranks. I love motivating people and in this new role, I will be able to do that. I am ready for this new challenge,” says #FDNY Captain Mario Thompkins, who was promoted today at the FDNY Officers Promotion Ceremony in Brooklyn. ...

Posted @withregram • @fdny “It feels amazing to know that my children look up to me. My daughter, EMT Sharon Aziz #Station31 wants to follow in my footsteps. I am happy to be an inspiration not only to her, but to all the young women out there who want to join the FDNY. There are more women in leadership roles now than ever, and I am proud to be a part of a Department that is doing its part. It is now my job to lead the women and men who protect and serve the citizens and visitors of this great city,” says #FDNY Captain Barbara Aziz, who was promoted today at the FDNY Officers Promotion Ceremony in Brooklyn. In 2019, Captain Aziz’ dedication to the Department was recognized during the annual Women’s History Month awards ceremony sponsored by the FDNY Quality of Work Life Committee. ...

Posted @withregram • @fdny “When I was five years old, I drowned and went into cardiac arrest. My dad pulled me out of the water and when I woke up, I was in the back of the ambulance with the EMTs. When I decided I wanted to find a new career, I looked back on this moment. I want to give back the way those EMTs did for me. I want to have an effect on people and I found the place where I can do that. My family doesn’t live in the city, so it is nice to have a job that offers me a family here and now I can say that I have finally found my home,” says FDNY Probationary EMT Kevin Rehrer, who will graduate tomorrow from the FDNY EMS Academy. ...

Posted @withregram • @fdny “Having my twin brother with me throughout the Academy definitely made it easier. We studied together, kept each other motivated, and pushed each other throughout the entire process. This job is already so fulfilling and I am honored to be here,” says #FDNY Probationary EMT Anthony Sanchez, who along with his twin brother Probationary EMT Luis Sanchez will graduate tomorrow from the FDNY EMS Academy. Probationary EMT Luis Sanchez says, “I was so excited when I found out we were in the same class. He is the one who first told me about EMS and is the reason I decided to join. We’ve always gotten along growing up and we’ve always been there for each other. I’m glad that I have found the same kind of camaraderie within the FDNY.” ...
