Paramedic Greco says, “I choose to get this vaccine for my family. Our work exposes us daily to this virus. I owe it to them not to bring it home. I encourage all members to make the best decision that fits their situation.”

The FDNY Moderna COVID-19 Vaccination Plan, conducted by the FDNY Bureau of Health Services (BHS) in conjunction with the Bureau of Operations, continues at FDNY Headquarters in Brooklyn, the FDNY EMS Academy at Fort Totten, and the FDNY Fire Academy on Randall’s Island.

The FDNY Vulcan Society continued its annual holiday outreach this year by partnering with Santa Claus and community organizations around the five boroughs to help celebrate the special season with families.

This year's efforts featured seven events in total, including a Christmas Celebration with the Friends of Public School Harlem, Inc., a Holiday Toy Giveaway at the Brooklyn Museum, a Winter Wonderland Toy Drive with The BedStuy BID and a Holiday Float Parade with the Uwf Fdny, NYPD 103rd Precinct and The ShowingHearts Foundation.

As part of the visits, our Firefighters also spent time with the youngsters in attendance to educate them about the many ways they can help the city as a first responder in our Department.

"It's very important for the kids in our city to see that Firefighters are here to help the community and we want them to know that they can join this Department and answer the call to help others as well," said Vulcan Society President Khalid Baylor. "Throughout the year and especially during the holiday season, the members of the Vulcan Society make it a priority to give back to the communities we serve. This year has been a challenging year for so many families in our city because of the COVID-19 pandemic and we're happy that we've been able to partner with these community organizations once again to help bring smiles to kids and families during the holiday season."

“I have 28 years on the job. I would like to give thanks to the Department for being one of the first to receive this vaccine. I hope a lot of my fellow coworkers follow suit. The main thing is to keep on working, stay safe, and serve the people of New York City. This also gives me an opportunity to go home to my family and feel safe with this extra security blanket,” says FDNY EMT Edwin Mendez, EMS Operations, who received the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine today along with other members of FDNY Emergency Medical Services.

FDNY EMT Nigel Hamilton, Bureau of Training, is scheduled to receive the vaccine next week. EMT Hamilton says, “I am scheduled to take the vaccine on Monday and I’m looking forward to it. One of the reasons I want to take the vaccine is because I worked during the peak of COVID and I was scared to visit my parents and be around my family. It’s a sigh of relief that I can go visit them now. I can go home and I don’t have to worry about bringing anything home to them. I encourage everyone out there, especially my brothers and sisters in the Department to go take the vaccine.”

The FDNY Moderna COVID-19 Vaccination Plan, conducted by the FDNY Bureau of Health Services (BHS) in conjunction with the Bureau of Operations, is currently underway at FDNY Headquarters in Brooklyn, the FDNY EMS Academy at Fort Totten, and the FDNY Fire Academy on Randall’s Island.

FDNY EMT Joseph Volavka, Station 50, who also received the COVID-19 vaccination today says, “It’s been a tough year here at the Department. I was sick back in May with COVID, though very minor symptoms. We’ve all seen what is happening out there. Getting this vaccine was important because of people at home. It offers me the peace of mind to go and see those loved ones that I haven’t seen. I am very happy the Department offered us this and I hope everyone goes out and gets it.”

FDNY Paramedic Verena Kansog, ALS Coordinator, says, “I’ve been in EMS for 30 years. When I came into my current position, that’s when COVID hit. I saw firsthand what it was doing to my EMS family. Seeing people get sick and knowing a lot of people who were getting sick. I was super excited to find out the Department was giving this vaccine. I haven’t seen my mom in a year because of COVID, being afraid that I was going to bring it home to her. I really hope that my family here at the Department comes and gets this vaccine so they can continue to do their jobs as wonderfully as they do."

FDNY EMS Lieutenant Anthony Almojera of Station 40 in Brooklyn, Vice President of Local 3621 FDNY EMS Officers Union, was among the first FDNY EMS members to receive the vaccine today. “FDNY EMS union members are always ready to help, help us by getting vaccinated,” said Lt. Almojera. “We encourage all who can to get the vaccine.” FDNY members are strongly encouraged to take the COVID-19 vaccine to protect themselves, their colleagues, and their loved ones.

As per the New York State COVID-19 Vaccination Plan, vaccination recipients are prioritized in phases. Phase 1 includes essential health care workers, including EMS. Phase 2 includes other essential frontline workers, including CFR Firefighters and will begin on December 29, 2020.

The Department is mourning the loss of Emergency Medical Technician Evelyn Ford, 58, from COVID-19. EMT Ford was a 27-year veteran of EMS. As a member assigned to Emergency Medical Dispatch (EMD), she served as citywide dispatcher, coordinating emergency medical response to large scale emergencies including major fires and mass casualty incidents.

“On the day we begin to vaccinate our EMS members from this deadly virus, it has once again taken one of our own. EMT Evelyn Ford is the twelfth member of the Department to die due to COVID-19,” said Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro. “For nearly three decades, EMT Ford was a member of the busiest and best Emergency Medical Service in the world. She was a professional medical provider who responded to help those in need on countless calls, and she was a calm voice during major emergencies ensuring New Yorkers received the urgent care they needed. Our entire Department mourns her loss.”

A resident of Long Island, EMT Ford was a highly respected member of EMD and a mentor to hundreds of her fellow EMTs. She also served as an EMT in Station 31 in Brooklyn during her career. She is survived by her four children.

“Working for the FDNY has given me the opportunity to expand my horizon as a professional in this business and it has been an exciting and interesting journey.

In addition to being a first responder, you can often spot FDNY Lieutenant Krystal Hayes lending a helping hand in many areas in our Department. As a 13-year veteran, she has become well-known for reinforcing the Department’s mission and values through her exceptional work.

“Every day in this career is different and that’s what I love about it,” said Hayes, who is also the daughter of FDNY Supervising Fire Marshal Donald Hayes. “We can see every day how our work is important because we’re saving lives and that’s why I love working here.”

She joined the FDNY as an EMS Trainee in 2007 and advanced through the ranks to become a Lieutenant in 2015. Just recently, she was also named as an EMS Peer Support Coordinator in the FDNY Counseling Service Unit (CSU). In this new role, she will oversee efforts to provide peer mental health services to our EMS members.

“I’m happy to be helping with our CSU because investing in our members mental health is important to me and everyone who works here,” she added. “We want our members to know that we’re here to support them.”

Like Lieutenant Hayes, you can become an EMS Trainee first to jump-start a rewarding career in our Department. The deadline for our latest EMS filing period is just one week away. Submit your application today at www.joinfdny.com/EMSFiling2020.

“Being a part of the military became a dream of mine after the attacks on September 11th. I joined the Navy in 2007 while I was in high school. I knew that I wanted to be a part of something bigger and that I wanted to protect this country. I have always felt safe and free being here and I wanted others to feel the same way. I did two tours in the Persian Gulf – Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom – and received several medals for my accomplishments. Then in 2019, I realized not only did I want to serve my country, I also wanted to protect my city. I wanted to be a part of the team of heroes that worked so tirelessly on September 11, 2001. What I love about the military and appreciate about the FDNY is that there is a lot of structure. Everything is organized and as a team we all have the same mission. The military prepared me to respect all ranks and understand the goals we are all trying to accomplish together. We’re all a team here, a family, and I am honored to be a part of it,” says FDNY EMT and U.S. Navy Veteran Gina Liandros, Station 35 pictured here with her former Commanding Officer Captain Dee Mewbourne aboard the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69). Today, and every day, FDNY honors all who have served.

“One of the main reasons I joined the Air Force back in 2012 was to gain experience for the FDNY. Being a New York City Firefighter has always been my dream. I come from a family of civil servants and military leaders. The Air Force gave me the experience I needed and so much more. I was able to travel the world while at the same time protect my country. It changed who I was as a person into who I am now. It forces you to learn leadership, expand your knowledge, and grow as a person. It translates very well to the FDNY since it is a paramilitary organization. In the Air Force, I am an Aerospace Ground Equipment Technician and our main mission is rapid deployments and intel communications. My unit is pretty demanding, so my training takes up a lot of time. The FDNY is great when it comes to supporting their military personnel, it’s the best that there is,” says FDNY Firefighter and United States Air Force Staff Sergeant Fernando Acosta, Ladder 3. Today, and every day, FDNY honors all who have served.

"Becoming a Marine was very special to me because my father was a Marine and I continued my family's tradition. I feel very proud and blessed to have served in the military because it instilled drive in me and taught me certain logistical skills that I’ve used consistently in my life to help people,” said FDNY Deputy Chief Inspector Richard Roche, who served as a Lance Corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve. "Serving in the Marines parallels so well in relation to working in the FDNY because we're expected to do a tremendous amount of things and we're expected to help the public in their time of need with both a rapid response and with a coordinated sense of purpose. In Fire Prevention, our mission is to not only help the residents and visitors in the city remain safe, we also have a huge role in making sure that our Firefighter and EMS brothers and sisters are entering safe buildings so they can fulfill their duties and help the city." Today, and every day, FDNY honors all who have served.

“I have always felt a calling to help people and I’m grateful that I can do that in both of my careers. I get to be there for people when they need help the most. I joined the Army in 2009 and the FDNY in 2018. The FDNY is very supportive of my military career. This Department has respect for the military and that allows me to attend all of my military training while at the same time working for the FDNY. The FDNY is my life, but I still have an obligation to the military and this country and the Department makes it easy to do both. My careers are very similar. You need discipline and the pressure I am under at both jobs makes me aware of how important the work that I do is,” says FDNY EMT and U.S. Army Reservist Naytasha Doyle, pictured here with her Station 59 Captain Barbara Aziz. Today, and every day, FDNY honors all who have served.

"I joined the United States Coast Guard in 1989 and two years later began my career in the FDNY. It’s a blessing to live in this country and this city, so I am honored that my careers allow me to give a little something back to both. The FDNY is very supportive of my military career, it’s tremendous. It allows me to take what I learn from both careers and implement what I’ve learned to do great work in both jobs. The USCG and FDNY are very similar in the way they operate and treat people. This is life-saving work and they work hand in hand together. Both organizations are filled with very exciting work and quality people. I’ve wanted to do this since I was young,” says FDNY Rescue 3 Captain and U.S. Coast Guard Reserve Chief Petty Officer and Chief of Police Bill Murphy.
