On Wednesday, May 18, 2016, in celebration of National EMS Week 2016, FDNY will held the 22nd annual Second Chance Ceremony at the FDNY Training Academy on Randall’s Island. This special event reunited thirteen patients, who have survived cardiac arrest, with the Paramedics, Emergency Medical Technicians, FDNY EMS Officers, Firefighters, bystanders and other first responders who helped save their lives.
As the 33rd Fire Commissioner of the great New York City Fire Department, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website.
Every day the members of our Department bravely protect life and property in the world’s greatest city.
Our Department not only responds to emergencies, we help prevent them by getting out into the community and promoting our many educational programs.
