Empire State Building Lights Up for EMS Week

The iconic Empire State Building was lit yellow, white and blue with a siren halo on May 20 for EMS Week.

EMS Week is an annual week-long series of events designed to promote public safety among all New Yorkers, attract potential EMS recruits and celebrate the life-saving efforts of more than 3,000 members of FDNY’s Emergency Medical Service.

This is the fifth year that the Empire State Building has partnered with FDNY to celebrate National EMS Week.  For more information on the Empire State Building and the Lighting Partners program, visit
