S3, E28 Train Brave with FDNY Rescue Paramedics Silvana Uzcategui and Krista O’Dea

In 2017, for the first time ever at the FDNY Academy, the majority of Rescue Paramedic trainees were women. Rescue Paramedics bring advanced pre-hospital care to any civilian or member of service in a precarious position while extrication procedures take place. Members selected for this program must undergo and complete intensive training at the Department’s Technical Rescue School which includes confined space training, collapse training, trench removal and high-angle rescue operations. In this episode, veteran Rescue Paramedic, Silvana Uzacategui, and recent program graduate, Krista O’Dea, recall and compare their experiences training and in the field. Chief of Staff Elizabeth Cascio hosts.
