Statement by DC 37 Executive Director Henry Garrido on the tragic death of EMT Yadira Arroyo

“It is difficult to convey the depth of our sorrow and anger. EMT Yadira Arroyo was literally a life saver. She went to work every day knowing that, at a moment’s notice, she could be called upon to face the awesome responsibility of saving a person’s life. Senseless violence snatched her from her children and family. All of her union sisters and brothers are shocked by the cruelty of her death, and we will do all we can to help her loved ones get through this terrible time and to comfort her EMT partner as she recovers from her wounds.”

District Council 37 is New York City's largest public employee union, with 125,000 members and 50,000 retirees.
