“When New Yorkers need help, when a loved one is sick or injured, they turn to our members, and the men and women of the FDNY always answer the call. They respond quickly with the incredible training and dedication that is a hallmark of our Department. Those here at the Empire State Building recognize the important role our Department plays in protecting New York City, and that’s why they’ve honored our members by lighting the world’s most famous building each year for a decade to kick off this week-long celebration,” said FDNY Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro at today’s @EmpireStateBldg Pre-lighting Ceremony, which celebrates the tenth consecutive year that the Empire State Building will be illuminated in yellow, white and blue, with a red and white halo, to celebrate National EMS Week and the life-saving efforts of the more than 4,000 members of FDNY’s Emergency Medical Service. Commissioner Nigro was joined by eight of this year’s FDNY Medal Recipients- Paramedic Niall C. O’Shaughnessy, #station4; EMT Taylor T. Perez, #station8; EMT Shaun Alexander, #station58; EMT Khadijah Hall, Station 58; Lt. Joe McWilliams, #station40; EMT Richard D. Cuccurullo, Station 40; EMT Chad W. Hannon, Station 40; and EMT Lisa Rasulo, #station27.
The crew that vacations to the Keys together slays fire/ems together. The crew that goes to Key West together slays dance floors together. The crew that changes flat tires/donuts/new tires together still gets home in a reasonable amount of time together. These are my people. #station4#fourhorsemen
