Honoring Heroes That We’ll “Never Forget”

-Mark Meijer, President

The horrible tragedy of 911 is a stark example of when someone calls for help, first responders, in our case EMS professionals, answer the call.  Most of you know that EMS personnel were among first responders that perished on 911 (I had the distinct honor of meeting the family members of an EMT who lost her life at Ground Zero), along with police and fire personnel.

This Sunday, September 11, 2022, marks the solemn 21st anniversary of the terror attacks that resulted in the deaths of almost 3,000 souls, many of which were fellow first responders.  It’s important to always remember our vigilance as a society regarding preventing future terror attacks along with the recognition of the heroic, selfless role first responders play in helping others on the front line of any tragedy.

A stark example of EMS answering the call is visible in the attached photos of ambulances covered in debris at Ground Zero in New York City waiting to receive patients that never came.  In addition, another photo shows EMS/ambulance responders staged at the Meadowlands Football Stadium in New Jersey ready to be called into New York to help patients in need.  Sadly, these EMS responders were never needed due to the tragedy of the number killed compared to injured. 

Thank you to all of you for being a part of a special profession whose focus is on helping others.  All Life EMS associates, regardless of your role here, play a critical part in allowing us to best serve those communities that trust us with their care.

We salute ALL of you and ALL First Responders.
