1996 was the year FDNY took over EMS.  Thank God I had already retired

When I started working in 1978, NYCEMS wore the above patch. NYC EMT's had Blue uniforms,Booth wore White and St Johns worked in Shorts,Tanktops & Sandels.Around '79 or '80 we all went to Green. NYC-MVOs stayed with Blue,EMTs went all Green & Medics Had Green pants-White shirts. Later everyone wore White shirts & Green pants. When I retired, they were getting Black coats. Now they wear Fidnee colors.
