Follow The Life Of An EMT During A 2-Week COVID-19 Deployment
Have you ever wondered what it’d be like to work as an EMT for two weeks in a city that happens to be a hot spot for a deadly new disease?
Yeah, neither have we.
That’s why we’re grateful for people like Vaughn Miller. The 25-year-old EMT from Syracuse, New York, volunteered for a two-week deployment to Newark, New Jersey, in early April to help with the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Miller was one of “hundreds” of EMTs and paramedics who responded to a FEMA request for additional help in the greater New York area in late March as coronavirus cases there soared.
