Today’s news:

First responders deserve gratitude

TimesLedger Newspapers

One thing we as New Yorkers should be proud of is the way our first responders respond to accidents and other dangerous situations that put people in harm’s way.

The ferry crash in Lower Manhattan and the crane collapse in Queens were immediately responded to by scores of firefighters, police and EMTs who rendered assistance to the injured right at the scenes of both accidents.

Every day our first responders put their lives on the line in order to protect the people of this city from potential harm. We owe every one of them a debt of gratitude for their service to our city.
