    • And…thank you for totally missing the point. In an ‘all hazards’ (combined fire and EMS) agency, it should not be considered a ‘promotion’ to leave being a paramedic to become a firefighter. Career personnel in EMS enter the profession to serve in EMS, not to become firefighters one day. In the same way, aspiring firefighters should not be encouraged to join EMS just to streamline their access to future promotions over to fire. Pay and discipline disparity is a real crisis in the FDNY and has been since day one of the merger.
