May 10, 2017
On Wednesday, May 10, 2017, Fire Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro joined FDNY members and a patient they rescued this past February at FDNY Headquarters in Brooklyn to officially unveil this year’s new citywide posters celebrating national EMS Week 2017, which begins on Sunday, May 21.
This year’s FDNY-developed poster’s theme is “Always In Service” and features FDNY Rescue Paramedics Jose Benitez and Ari Nathanson of Station 8 in Manhattan working closely with Firefighter Gregory Beach of Rescue Company 1 and Firefighters Ronneal Edwards and Brendan Lee of Engine 26 to provide emergency medical care to Marco Bravo, a construction worker who was seriously injured at a construction site in Manhattan.
Designed and produced by Vanguard Direct, the poster is intended to raise awareness about the life-saving work of FDNY members and will be displayed in 350 kiosks citywide, which have been generously donated by Intersection.
