On July 30, 2021, Rescue Paramedics Hugh Smith and Shewain George were presented with a challenge that would test their many years of training and experience. The rescue medics arrived on scene of a building collapse to find FDNY Special Operations Units operating to rescue two trapped victims. Together with Lieutenant Paul Ardizzone, they worked to assess, stabilize and treat the two pinned workers. For their efforts at this operation they were awarded the Christopher J. Prescott medal this past June. The three members discuss this arduous assignment, their rescue medic training and attending medal day with host Chief of Staff Elizabeth Cascio.
