Members attending the EMS annual picnic tomorrow at Ft. Totten will be permitted to park on the base in one of three locations.

The parking lot across from building 325, student parking lots, and the street alongside Quartermaster.
Additionally you may park along the fence line across from the parade field, and down on the EVOC field.
Members need to show their ID at the guard booth for access to the base.

For family members and guests that will be attending:
If they are not accompanying the member, and will be arriving separately, they are instructed to park in the public lot before the entrance to Ft. Totten. They will be able to use the “pool shuttle” or can walk up the hill to the parade field where the picnic will be held.

Please do not park on any grass surfaces around the base.

Thank you for your cooperation and we hope to see you there.
The Officers and E-board of Local 2507

Good afternoon. 

The office is officially moving this Thursday and Friday.

The Officers and Executive Board have unanimously voted to move out.

We have found a space that's more fiscally sound than our current location. 
It is our fiduciary responsibility to manage the funds to the best interest of the local.

The savings will go towards acquiring our own property in the future. 

The new location is 150-39 14th ave
Whitestone NY 11357 
Second floor. 

We may experience a short interruption in our phone lines. 

If so, please call your delegate for further assistance. 

 

Thank you,
Oren Barzilay

Good afternoon,

We recently held a meeting with management to discuss some ongoing issues.

Station 39- We have received a confirmation that renovation at 39 is going to begin this coming October.

The Department is awaiting the Office of Management and Budget final approval

Verification Unit- The Department advised additional staff has been added to expedite the process.

Sick Leave Policy- Held in abeyance for almost 10 years.

We demanded a new Sick Leave Policy to reflect our winning arbitration decision.

New policy is in process.

Mutuals- We expressed our interest in having our weekly mutual expanded beyond the same week.

Due to FLSA rules this might be an issue.

We’ll continue to work on this.

Payroll Issues- There are dozens upon dozens of different types of inquiries submitted each pay period,

frequently unanswered.

The union requests that the members be acknowledge via email or station mail.

The Department is working on additional staff to correct the errors and delays in getting our members paid correctly.

EMS SAFETY CAMPAIGN- The assaults on out members is on the rise.

We’re working on a public safety announcement campaign.

First, the Department will assist us with placing warning signs on trucks “Assaulting EMS Personal is a Felony”.

Second, we’re going to hit the radio airwaves, Hot 97 and 92.3 with a message to the public on assaulting EMS personal.

We have a lot of work ahead of us.

Together we will get there.

Be well, and look out for each other!

Good afternoon,

The Department of Citywide Administration Services has recently opened the option to apply for the permanent Civil Service Paramedic title.

Paramedics that are currently employed by the FDNY ad are not Civil Service are encouraged to apply.

The Department has notified the office that any member that is not in the Civil Service title of Paramedic, will be demoted to EMT as per Civil Service Law.

This is for all provisional Paramedics.

Note: If you were hired directly as a Paramedic and did not apply for Civil Service, and do not hold the Civil Service title as an EMT, you will be released from the Department.

This is a DCAS directive.

Go to http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcas/html/work/exam_monthly.shtml and look for exam number 8502

 

Protect yourself, make sure you apply.

One of our members, Rosa Roman from Brooklyn is about to fall off payroll. She needs about 30 days of donated leave so she can keep her benefits and stay on payroll. She’s scheduled to be back to work in September. If anyone is able to donate some time, please fill the application and fax it over to our office.

Fax Number: 718-371-0318

The Donation Application is available at all stations with intranet access.

To donate Sick Leave, you must have at least 10 years on the job and a minimum of 24 days in your Sick Leave balance.

 

Thank you.

My Brothers & Sisters

As the Newly Appointed World Trade Center & Retiree's Liaison one of My First Orders of Business is to Create a Base of Both Active & Retired WTC Members!!
This Base will be Only Available to Myself and the Member. 


Long Ago Our Members Should Have Been Tracked and Followed.


This Way I Can Share Life Saving Medical Screenings, Testing, Medical Updates and other Assistance Available to Our Members!!


** PLEASE UNDERSTAND YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE SICK TO BE REGISTERED FOR WTC MEDICAL MONITORING ** IF YOU WERE THERE THEN YOU WERE EXPOSED!!


No One Got Out of the WTC Site or the Fresh Kills Site for Free!!  First Responders ARE STILL BEING DIAGNOSED WITH POTENTIAL LIFE-THREATENING ILLNESS AND DISEASE!!


So, With That in Mind All Members That This Applies.

Please Email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  So I Can Email You a Simple Set of Questions

Thank You,
Gary Smiley
