FDNY Delivers Overdue Honor to EMS Hero

NEW YORK – FDNY members traveled to the East Vineland, NJ, home of John Wyatt, Jr., in June to deliver overdue awards to the retired FDNY EMS hero, including a certificate for serving a quarter century for the city, something he always wanted.

Paramedic Wyatt, who served with the EMS Command for 25 years before retiring in 2008, worked at the World Trade Center site for months after the tragedy and was diagnosed with a 9/11-related cancer in 2012.
