“I was a 3rd Class Petty Officer for the United States Coast Guard. I am happy to work for the FDNY and join my brother Stephen Choy who’s a Firefighter at Ladder 158,” said #FDNY Probationary #EMT Danielle Smith, a @uscg veteran who is graduating from the FDNY #EMS Academy today. “I wanted to work for the FDNY because of its legacy of being best department in the world. A lot of my family is involved in EMS and first response. My father influenced me to become an EMT. I look forward to helping people in their time of need and giving someone a second chance at life.” ...

“There are people in my family with health issues and I never wanted to feel like I couldn’t help them. They are the reason I became an EMT and now I’m the first in my family to join the Department,” said #FDNY Probationary #EMT Dontae Waddell, a 2019 FDNY Youth Winter EMS Academy alum who is graduating from the #FDNY #EMS Academy today. “I enjoyed the hands-on training and doing skills in the Academy. I believe WEMSA prepared me ahead of time for the load of the Academy and I’m looking forward to using all that I’ve learned to help the city.”

“The FDNY Exploring Program introduced me to the world of emergency medicine. I took advantage of the opportunity and trained in the Youth Winter EMS Academy in 2019. I enjoyed the program and I’m ecstatic to officially be a FDNY EMT. I’ve met some great people so far and I’m looking forward to this next chapter in my life,” said #FDNY Probationary #EMT Xavier Altamirano, a WEMSA 2019 alum and former #FDNYExplorer who is graduating from the #EMS Academy today. “I am the oldest child in my family and I want to set a good example for my siblings. They are all so proud of me and I want to continue to make them proud.”

“The FDNY Youth Winter EMS Academy prepared me for this moment. I am thankful for the FDNY Youth program because it really gave me a better understanding of protocols and medical care,” said #FDNY Probationary #EMT Teddy Harris, a WESMA 2019 alum and former #FDNYExplorer who is graduating from the FDNY #EMS Academy today. “My cousins Edmond and Edison Samuels are members of the FDNY and aside from my family influence, the Exploring Program really pushed me into becoming an EMT. The academy went by quickly and it was a lot of information taught in a short period of time. I feel well prepared to help our patients and make a difference in the city.”

“I attended the FDNY Youth Winter EMS Academy in 2019. That program helped me get started in this career. I’m from Mexico and I am the first in my family to join the FDNY. Since I could remember, I wanted to become a first responder because I wanted to help out my community and I am living out my dream now,” said #FDNY Probationary #EMT David Hernandez, a WEMSA 2019 alum who is graduating from the FDNY #EMS Academy today. “I learned a lot in the EMS Academy and the instructors were extremely helpful. They pushed us all to reach our full potential. I hope to use my training and education to help the city.”

I know that he would be proud of my decision to join the FDNY. I want the people of New York City to feel like they’re getting the help that they need and deserve. I have always had a passion for helping people. Now that I’m an EMT, I look forward to meeting people from all walks of life, expanding not only my medical knowledge, but my cultural knowledge too. I love learning about all the diversity that New York City has to offer,” says #FDNY Probationary EMT Eric del Valle, stepson of EMT Norman Valle, who graduates tomorrow from the FDNY EMS Academy.

Posted @withregram • @fdny “My father, Emmett Daly Sr., is a retired Lieutenant from #Ladder155. He worked for the Department for 35 years and I am proud to be following in his footsteps. My father is one of the reasons why I joined the Department. I grew up around people he considered family and always saw how supportive the FDNY community was. During the Academy, I liked that we came together as a squad and worked together, pushed each other and became a family. I worked hard in class and put a lot of effort into studying. Now that I am on the streets, I’m excited to be out and utilizing the skills I have learned,” says #FDNY Probationary EMT Emmett Daly Jr., who graduates tomorrow from the FDNY EMS Academy as the Alpha Company Academic Achiever.
