Jersey City Medical Center holds Memorial Service honoring EMS workers

JERSEY CITY — As a highlight to its numerous activities during National EMS Week, Jersey City Medical Center recently held a special memorial service honoring EMS workers (volunteer and professionals) who lost their lives in service last year. The ceremony took place on the Jersey City Waterfront overlooking the Hudson River and the World Trade Center site in conjunction with the National Memorial EMS Bike Ride from Boston to Washington, D.C. Several hundred riders participated from throughout the United States and Canada.
Local elected officials praised the riders, and presented the Jersey City Medical Center EMS with proclamations. Robert Luckritz, Director of the JCMC EMS, thanked NY Waterways and said it was very fitting that NY Waterway was the hospital’s partner on this ride as they moved hundreds seeking aid on 9/11 and when flight 1549 crashed into the Hudson River.
