In most cases, FDNY EMS members have the tools, training and equipment to respond daily to all sorts of emergencies throughout the city. But, occasionally the men and women of FDNY EMS are forced to improvise or make split second decisions to save a life. Despite the conditions they are faced are with, they help the public at a moment’s notice.That’s just what happened last year in Brooklyn when this episode’s guests, EMT Gary Hui and EMT Samuel Wright rescued an unconscious driver moments after their dump truck crashed, trapping the patient inside as it started to burn. For their efforts, the two EMTs were awarded the Christopher J. Prescott Medal at the 2021 FDNY Medal Ceremony held in June. Chief of Staff Elizabeth Cascio hosts.
