The FDNY Foundation sends our condolences to the family and friends of FDNY EMT Gregory Hodge who passed away from the coronavirus. EMT Hodge was a 24-year veteran of the FDNY. He was a responder to the rescue and recovery efforts at Ground Zero and had been assigned to New York City Emergency Management since 2016.
“EMT Hodge was a skilled first responder who provided outstanding emergency medical care to thousands of New Yorkers throughout his long and distinguished career of service,” said FDNY Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro. “This pandemic has impacted our Department at every level, especially our EMS members who are responding to more medical calls than ever before. Now, they will continue to bravely answer those calls with even heavier hearts, having lost one of their fellow EMTs to COVID-19. Our entire Department mourns his loss.”
EMT Hodge began his career assigned to Station 16 in Harlem. He later worked at Station 55 in the Bronx and then NYCEM.
