EMS Memorial Tuesday May 23

The EMS Memorial Service is being held Tuesday May 23, 2017 during EMS Week. The EMS Community will come together and honor EMS providers who have died while in the line of duty, sadly we will be adding three new names to the memorial, Stephanie Potter-Moira Volunteer Fire and Rescue, Norman Valle-FDNY EMS and Larry Fuller-Hunter Ambulance. It is fitting that we take time to acknowledge and remember our brothers and sisters who made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of others as EMS providers. The Ceremony will be held at the Empire State Plaza from 1100 – 1200.

I would like to personally invite you to join us in remembering all of the individuals who have been lost and take part in the memorial service by displaying an agency vehicle; we have reserved a special area for you to park on the Empire State Plaza near the memorial. If you plan on attending you will need to be cleared for security, please contact Donna Johnson, preferably by email at donna.johnson@health.ny.gov or at 518-402-1612, no later than May 16, 2017.
