FDNY unveils poster celebrating EMS Week
The poster features paramedics and firefighters providing care to a worker who was seriously injured at a construction site
NEW YORK — Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro will join FDNY members and a patient they rescued last February on May 10 at 10 a.m. at FDNY Headquarters to officially unveil this year’s new citywide posters celebrating national EMS Week 2017, which begins on 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.
On Monday, Feb. 2, 2017, at 1:57 p.m., FDNY members responded to a patient who suffered a serious leg injury while working on the top floor of a 26-story building on the West Side of Manhattan. The FDNY members in the poster, and several additional units not pictured, treated, stabilized and transported the patient to a nearby hospital.
Designed and produced by Vanguard Direct, the poster is intended to raise awareness about the lifesaving work of FDNY members and will be displayed in 350 kiosks citywide, which have been generously donated by Intersection.
