how about thanking ems also!!!!!!!!!!!!

Edward Wendell

We're big fans of EMS, many of whom also volunteer their time at the various VACs around the city.

In this instance, though, EMS was unable to respond in a timely manner. The person who called was told they would be "at least 20 minutes" -- and at that moment, with a woman on the ground, 20 minutes seemed like a very long time.

The FDNY was there within minutes and secured the situation until EMS could arrive. No slight was meant to EMS, but it was the FDNY that deserved the special thanks in this case. It also served as a reminder in the days and months after we fought so hard to save one of our local firehouses, that they exist not only to fight fires, but to assist EMS when needed, as they did on this day.
