NEW YORK, Oct. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Sirens blaring. Horns honking. Wheels screeching. Oh no! There goes an ambulance. Zoom. Zoom. Zoom. We hear them every day in NYC. Where are they going? What happened? Is anybody injured? These are the thoughts that cross our minds.
In New York City, there are heroes – first responders – who rush to dangerous situations every day. No matter how stressful, dangerous, or heartbreaking their day was, these same heroes get up every day to do it again. And again. And again. But who are these heroes? How do they do it? How do they cope? How many times a day did they have to stare death in the face during the pandemic and risk getting COVID or other illnesses themselves?
Have you ever wondered, "Who does a hero call when they need help? How can I help a hero?"
