Awful. @FDNY EMS paramedic Christell Cadet―who shared her #coronavirus struggle publicly last week from her hospital bed―is now in the ICU on a ventilator.🙏🏼

45 FDNY members (firefighters, EMS and civilians) tested positive for #COVID19.

My heart aches for Christell and her loved ones, as well as for these other #FDNY heroes.

All first responders should be tested EVERY DAY for #coronavirus, because they're at HIGH RISK of being infected.

They should also be screened for protective antibodies (prior #COVID19).
We need to protect our brave first responders by quickly identifying/isolating those who are infected with the #coronavirus. This will also help to protect other staff and patients from getting #COVID19.

09.11.01 #Thread 8:46am @IWidroff & myself were clearing an emergency call in Midwood Bklyn when a call for “an explosion atop the #WTC “ We responded! Little did we know, at 9:03am a second plane hit the second tower, we were in the BBT at the time..
exiting the tunnel was like a scene out of an apocalyptic movie set flaming chunks of debris atop of smashed cars, convoys of emergency vehicles, sirens blaring all making its way to the #WTC
At that moment we knew this was no “small plane” accident into a building
We staged at the corner of Liberty & West, together with countless other #Hatzolah #FirstResponders #FDNY & #NYPD units trying to determine how to help those trapped in the towers..chaos!
The panic as “another plane” was spotted flying in fast... #USAF F16
#USA was under attack
