What a touching story!

The New York City Fire Department unveiled their EMS Week 2011 posters yesterday during a press event at Department Headquarters. The posters have become an annual event for the department, one of the few things it does to draw attention to its EMS activities. The posters are placed around the city on 350 public phone booths.

Here’s a video featuring Chief of EMS Abdo Nahmod talking about the posters and the stories behind them:

While this attempt to rewrite history may be the least controversial aspect of the posters, it goes to show the completely egotistical nature of the department and their tendency to create fiction instead of acknowledging and communicating fact.
