EMS Workers Join Memorial Ride
Once again May 17 through May 24 is designated as EMS Week, during which the nation recognizes EMS workers' dedication to service. It is also a time during which EMS workers remember those who have fallen in the line of duty. Four members of Rockaway's EMS station participated in the EMS memorial bicycle ride, which began in Tarrytown, NY and finished approximately 500 miles later in Roanoke, VA. This year they were among approximately 130 riders who made the journey. The National EMS Memorial inducted 90 EMS workers who have died in the line of duty.
