Tomorrow marks the eighth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, providing an appropriate — albeit somber — time to reflect on our profession. It is a chance to not only remember those lost in the line of duty, but also to reaffirm our own dedication to the EMS field.
To commemorate the date, we feature details of Firefighter-EMT Glenn Winuk, who died helping rescue people from the World Trade Center, being posthumously awarded a Medal of Valor
. In addition, an article by his brother, Jay, advocates honoring the victims by looking forward
and improving the lives of those in need.
