First Responder Friday: FDNY Probationary EMT Bryan Gallagher

NEW YORK (WABC) -- This First Responder Friday shout out is to FDNY Probationary EMT Bryan Gallagher who, as a second language, uses American Sign Language to communicate.

From the FDNY Instagram, Eyewitness News learned about this probationary EMT.

"My name is Probationary EMT Bryan Gallagher. I wanted to join the FDNY because of my family's long legacy of public service. As a new EMT, I look forward to helping people in their time of need. My sister is deaf, and my family uses ASL to communicate. I know ASL will be helpful in this job, especially with providing help to patients in the deaf and hard of hearing community," said Probationary EMT Gallagher.


Whether it's helping out, celebrating a milestone of service, or a first responder in need -- we want to hear about it!
