2016 EMS Week Recognition and Memorial Dinner


As a prelude to the 2016 EMS Week, on Tuesday, May 3, 2016, at 7:00 PM, members of the City’s three dozen volunteer ambulance services, fire departments, and first response services will gather for the Twelfth Annual Recognition and Memorial Dinner at Russo’s On The Bay, in Howard Beach, Queens. The gathering will recognize those who provide their invaluable services to the City of New York every day, as well as remember those who lost their lives while doing so. This year, we will celebrate with elected officials from around the City as well as high ranking officers from the City’s emergency services, to thank the volunteers for their heroic efforts each and every day on behalf of the City’s residents. I hope that you will join us as well, as a Sponsor and/or take a Journal Ad and be a participant at the event.

Very truly yours,

Martin L. Grillo Ryan Gunning
