FDNY Promotes 59 EMS Officers, Graduates 52 Paramedics

"Our new paramedics will bring life-saving medical training to our most serious medical calls, while our newly promoted chiefs, captains, and lieutenants will provide critical leadership at the more than 1.5 million medical emergencies FDNY members respond to," Fire Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro said. "Together, these members in their new roles, and every EMT, paramedic, and officer will continue to demonstrate that FDNY is not only the busiest emergency medical service in the world, it's also the best."

New York Fire Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro presided over the Jan. 23 graduation ceremony in Brooklyn for 52 paramedics, an event that also included the promotion of 59 EMS officers.

"Our new paramedics will bring life-saving medical training to our most serious medical calls, while our newly promoted chiefs, captains, and lieutenants will provide critical leadership at the more than 1.5 million medical emergencies FDNY members respond to," Nigro said. "Together, these members in their new roles, and every EMT, paramedic, and officer will continue to demonstrate that FDNY is not only the busiest emergency medical service in the world, it's also the best."

Four members were promoted to division chief, six members were promoted to deputy chief, 23 members were promoted to captain, and 26 members were promoted to lieutenant. "I am excited to become a leader on this job. It's a great place to work, and I am proud of this career," Lt. Pierre Charboneau said. "I love being a part of this community. When we go to work, it means something. It means that someone is truly in need and we get to be the ones that are there for them."

The paramedics graduated from FDNY's Medic Basic training, having received nine months of training at the EMS Academy in all aspects of their job as paramedics and Advanced Life Support providers, the highest level of pre-hospital care.

"The training in our department is second to none, and the instructors at Fort Totten have put you on the path to success," said Acting Chief of Department John Sudnik. "Now, it's up to all of you to use that training successfully on every tour."
