Local 95 Rides with Muddy Angels to Honor Fallen EMS Hero

Each year, the National EMS Memorial Bike Ride (NEMSMBR) memorializes and celebrates both EMS professionals who currently serve their communities, and those who have been injured or lost their life in the line of duty. Hosted by an organization called Muddy Angels, the event has long-distance cycling events across the US and Canada. 
 
On Saturday, May 13, 2017, IAEP Local 95 participated in the Opening Ceremony of the East Coast Route. Members from the Worcester EMS Honor Guard stood by to send off Local 95 members riding to Arlington, VA, in honor of John Lynch, a Worcester EMS paramedic who lost his life last year.
 
Local 95 President Bryan Urato participated as a member of the honor guard, and Worcester EMS Chief Steve Haynes spoke at the event on Saturday. IAEP National Director Phil Petit attended to stand in solidarity with union members and deliver a generous donation made by NAGE Charities to the National EMS Memorial Bike Ride.
 
As of Tuesday afternoon, May 16th, East Coast riders were crossing the Hudson River, as seen in a post on the NEMSBMR Facebook page, where you can follow along with cyclists from across the nation.
 
Please join the IAEP in wishing a safe ride to all those participating, and recognizing the EMS heroes being honored during this year’s event.
