The F.D.N.Y. is asking regular New Yorkers for help during COVID-19 pandemic.

F.D.N.Y Local 2507, the union representing more than 4,000 uniformed EMTs, paramedics and other first responders for the City of New York is urging New Yorkers to help first responders during the COVID-19 pandemic by donating gear and supplies to keep first responders safe.

People who do not have excess gear can also donate money at

Specific gear and supplies currently needed to help protect EMTs and the public include: N95 masks, surgical masks, medical goggles, hand sanitizer and bleach. To ensure the items get into the hands of first responders, people are instructed to drop them off in a plastic bag outside the Local FDNY 2507 Office located at 150-39 14th Avenue, Whitestone, NY 11357.

The EMSFDNY HelpFund helps first responders battling medical issues, debilitating injuries and personal tragedies,” said Michael Greco, vice president of F.D.N.Y Local 2507.

Every day our members put themselves in harms-way to keep their community safe. During this unprecedented pandemic, it’s unfortunate, but inevitable, that first responders will become infected with the virus and when that happens, we need to be there for them. By donating gear and supplies, people can help keep our first responders safe on the job, and by making a financial contribution they can ensure their welfare if tragedy strikes.”
