A week ago today my son and his hockey teammates won the Wisconsin Peewee B Hockey championship. It was a great group of kids and we had a lot of fun this season. It was an honor to help coach this group and this puck is prominently displayed in my office. Go Icehawks!
FDNY EMT Yadira Arroyo, 44, a 14-year veteran of the department and mother of five, was killed Thursday night in the line of duty. Her killer has been arrested and charged with murder.
On Friday, like EMS providers everywhere, I tried to make sense of this terrible tragedy in an EMS1 article (Learning from the tragic death of FDNY EMT killed by ambulance hijacker) and a conversation with Chris Cebollero on a special episode of the Inside EMS podcast. Dave Konig has also reflected on Arroyo’s death.
