Kimberley Laychock is a 21-year veteran of the FDNY who is serving on the frontlines of the Coronavirus outbreak in New York City. Sunday, May 17, 2020, marks the start of EMS Week 2020, an annual week-long initiative to promote public safety among all New Yorkers and celebrate the life-saving efforts of more than 4,400 members of FDNY’s Emergency Medical Service. The FDNY celebrates this in conjunction with National EMS Week. Each year during EMS Week, the FDNY unveils a poster which is intended to raise greater awareness about the life-saving work of FDNYs EMTs and Paramedics. The 2020 poster features seven members of the FDNY Emergency Medical Service, including Laychock. In this episode, she shares her COVID-19 experience with host Chief of Staff Elizabeth Cascio, and her passion for helping others in their greatest hour of need.
