About Me
I was an FDNY EMS Deputy Chief assigned to the Borough of the Bronx and a member of the FDNY Incident Management Team. The Bronx is approximately 60 square miles in area with a population of about 1.4 million. Our daily call volume ranges between 700 to 800. I worked with two other deputy chiefs and we worked for one division commander who runs EMS operations in the borough. Now, I've recently retired, I'm a wife and mom married for 22 years with a son and daughter in college.

I'm deciding what I'll be doing in my second act. In the meantime, I'm living the dream in southern California.
I Love Being in EMS Because
Every day presents new challenges and the potential to make a difference.

Hi, Katherine! My grandfather on my father's side (by remarriage) was Tom Fuchs who ran the G.A. Fuchs Co. (religious supply store) in Detroit, MI for many years. He was much loved by the clergy and several bishops dozens of priests showed up for his funeral when he succumbed to Alzheimer's disease. Probably no relation, but I don't see the name very often!

Thanks for the nice words. And thanks for getting my point in the MCI discussion about how the rules change when a truly catastrophic event occurs. My hope is that those rules that make perfect sense in the ordinary don't get in the way during the extraordinary.

I hope you don't mind me asking, but I would love to be able to bounce the occasional idea off of you. I've studied terrorism (especially nuclear and bio) for the past several years, but only have recently found a calling in homeland security--with a focus on response. And experienced operators such as yourself represent a valuable resource that those interested in "national security" do not tap enough.

Best.

Arnold
