It is with deep regret that Broome Volunteer Emergency Squad and the Broome County Office of Emergency Services have advised us of the Line of Duty Death of Chief Karen Hand, AEMT-CC this morning. 

Karen was the Chief of the Broome Volunteer Emergency Squad, and lost her life to sudden cardiac arrest this morning while on a run. In addition to her 17 years of service with BVES, Karen was Captain of the Lisle Fire Company EMS First Response Team, has served as a Deputy EMS Coordinator with the Broome County Office of Emergency Services for the past 20 years, and was a member of the Southern Tier CISM Team. As always, our sincere condolences.
