They say a picture is worth a thousand words, When I take a photo It feels like I captured that moment on film forever. As time goes and our memory of events fade, we may forget certain details of experiences that we encounter. As I look at a particular photo of an event that I covered, the photo jogs my memory and it brings back the particulars of the job. When you read a story your imagination portrays the images in your mind, when you look at a photo, you get a much clearer picture. In the near future, I will be writing stories along with photos of various incidents that I have photographed over the years. Through my photography and video, I hope to keep the history of my experiences with the FDNY & EMS alive for future generations.

FDNY Hero Firefighter Ray Pfeifer takes his last ride after passing away from 9/11 Cancer. Ray was Instrumental in getting the 9/11 Zadroga Health and Compensation Bill passed. He will be missed by all.
The Grand Central Station neighborhood is changing, next door is the new One Vanderbilt building. It is going to be at least a 100 stoey building. It's one of a bunch of 100 story buildings that are under construction. Anywhere there is air rights, there is the potential of building up. These huge structures drastically increase the population of the area where they are situated. Will city services increase with the new buildings? Will Police, Fire, EMS and other essential services hire more people and add more fire stations? I wonder! As I walk around the city, I can't believe how big New York City is. It's amazing how well the Emergency Services operate in this city. After experiencing 9/11/01 and Hurricane Sandy, I can't help but think of what will happen if there is a major Earthquake, Hurricane, flood, terrorist attack or other disasters. Not too long ago, average citizens were trained in Civil Defense. Perhaps it's time to re-start those programs. Most people would help out in a major disaster, Our greatest resource is our people, so lets start now, before it's too late.
