Inaugural EMS FDNY HELP FUND Humanitarian Awards Dinner Thursday April 11, 2019
Each year, EMS FDNY Help Fund selects an individual who has generously supported the community as the recipient of the Humanitarian of the Year award. We appreciate the work they do and honor them for their work, generosity and support of organizations within our EMS footpring. Proceeds of the Humanitarian of the Year event go to fund the programs that give back, helping individuals with developmental disabilities live a life without limits. Help us celebrate this year’s humanitarian by attending the event, sponsoring or donating to our silent auction. Your donation matters. Thank you!
Our mission is to ensure the security of our Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics and their families in the event of death, injury, illness or hardship through the implementation of a variety of fund-raising initiatives. Such projects may include award presentation dinners, gala events, contests, raffle drawings, and general community outreach activities. . Until very recently, there were no funds designated expressly for EMS FDNY Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics. These dedicated professionals can now have a peace of mind, in the knowledge that their families will be taken care of should the unthinkable occur. On March 16, 2017 we suffered a tragic loss. FDNY Emergency Medical Technician Yadira Arroyo made the Supreme Sacrifice in the Line of Duty, when was she run over by her own ambulance. It was this heartbreaking event that sparked the urgent need for funds to support surviving family members, and consequently, the establishment of the EMS FDNY Help Fund. If you or a loved one has been on the receiving end of EMS FDNY care, you are already familiar with the professionalism these dedicated FDNY Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics display. They efficiently attend to the sick and injured while politely fielding questions from the victim's panicked family, friends or co-workers. Please show your appreciation for the fine men and women you depend on in an emergency. Let's work together to ensure that future generations of skilled professionals remain attracted to our EMS FDNY force. That can only happen with your support. If you cannot buy tickets to our Inaugural EMS FDNY Help Fund Awards Dinner on April 11, 2019, please help with a contribution. Any amount, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated. We thank you, and hope that you or your loved ones never need us. But if you do, we are and ready to help. John J. Manning Chairperson EMS FDNY Help Fund
