This week's Photo of the Week shows the Empire State Building in New York City displaying yellow, blue and white lights to honor EMS Week 2021. The lights flashed in a "heartbeat" effect to recognize the lifesaving work of EMS providers, and were displayed for the 13th year in a row this week, in partnership with the FDNY.
"Once again, the Empire State Building will honor the men and women of EMS who have worked tirelessly on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic by lighting the world's most famous building during National EMS Week," FDNY Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro said in a statement. "Our EMTs and Paramedics responded to a record setting number of emergencies during the height of the pandemic, answering calls for help despite the dangers they faced. They are dedicated, brave, highly-trained, and without question, the best at what they do."
