With volunteer fire companies facing staffing issues, Senator Dan Laughlin believes inmates should be volunteer firefighters / EMTs.
“One of the exciting parts of the program is we are working with the Department of Health to get them EMT certifications.”

Today I had an amazing tour of the Chevra Hatzalah which started in the LES and has more than a thousand volunteer EMTs and paramedics who answer more than 70,000 calls each year with private vehicles and a fleet of more than 90 ambulances. Thank you @EzraFriedlander !
Fun fact: Most people who are shot with Cupid's arrow bleed out before the EMTs arrive.
SOCIALISM SUCKS!! Let’s get rid of public schools, sanitation services, water treatment, road repair, fire depts, EMTs, ambulance drivers, 9-1-1, the military, the good cops, libraries, building code inspectors, food safety inspectors, public utilities...
See how stupid that is?
American #healthcare’s staggering administrative overhead- by @mass_marion. Only ~1/4 of US healthcare expenditures pays for physicians, nurses, PAs, physical therapists, EMTs, testing labs, & health aides. Figure via @CitizenHealthio http://theintell.com/opinion/20200218/guest-opinion-american-health-cares-staggering-administrative-overhead h/t @DrShlain
The EMTs took me to the non-preferred state hospital because they said I looked like I didn't have insurance, so they didn't take me to the in-network private hospital that was mere blocks from my accident.
Way to go, America.
OPINION | The work of NYC cops, firefighters and EMS workers involve much of the same mission: protect and serve the people.
Despite that shared mission, NYC’s EMS workers are paid at staggeringly lower rates compared to their peer emergency responders.
Almost 3/4 of your healthcare-related taxes, insurance premiums, out-of-pocket costs DO NOT pay docs, RNs, APRNs, PAs, PTs, EMTs, labs, or aides. Most of your money pays administrators (execs, bureaucrats, assorted paper pushers, and bean counters). 🙀 https://www.theintell.com/opinion/20200218/guest-opinion-american-health-cares-staggering-administrative-overhead
Women must listen to their bodies! I suffered a heart attack, it started w/crushing pain in my chest. I almost didn’t call for help, bec in my mind I was “too young” to have one. EMTs saved me! #WomensHealth #HeartHealth #HeartMonth https://twitter.com/CaptSandyYawn/status/1230640724070346753
Today at 9am, we had all-staff Narcan training at the Center for Fiction. True story: On her way home, one of our staff had to use her kit on the subway. The EMTs told her, "You saved a life today." Get trained and get the staff where you work trained!
What video just described Saturday, had a drunk that you have to get drug out by Addison Texas EMTs in the Crowne Plaza driveway, you have a call that gives you $140 in tip & $100 in app, you have a up-and-coming black rapper, $40 tip cash, A new corporate account:
Tell them to never
call the police then.
Or fire dept.
Or have the military
defend the country.
It burns. 😒
Best thing I’ve seen all week! (and our match had the Beastie Boys circa Intergalactic as EMTs on the pitch) https://twitter.com/cesarhfutbol/status/1231065295202111488
I’d like to sincerely from the bottom of my heart thank all the EMTs, nurses, techs, doctors, and anyone else who make up the medical field and process, had a scare today with my mother, bless you all who chose these professions and take care of others loved ones.
CEMs paramedics currently make $10,000 less than police officers and firefighters. Like FDNY, 80% of our service has less than 5 years experience. https://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/ny-oped-pay-emts-what-they-deserve-20200222-lawhpxyjmvek3ke44ricyb4ymy-story.html
