I have just been informed of the death of Meghan Gormley, former member of the Glendale Volunteer Ambulance Corps, of Queens County, NYC, NY. She was the daughter of Ed and Kathy Gormley, themselves former members of the now defunct Peninsula Volunteer Ambulance Corps of the Rockaways, Queens County, NYC, NY.

In 2001, only 5 days after the September 11th Attack on America, Ms. Gormley, and 2 other volunteer EMTs from other areas of New York State, using loaned equipment from other, established First Aid Drill Teams, at the convention of the New York State Volunteer Ambulance and Rescue Association, distinguished themselves by winning several awards during the convention's First Aid competitions. The impromptu team called themselves "City Meets Country".

It is of note that the 3 EMTs had never met each other, or trained together as a team, prior to the convention, showing how all EMTs can pull together when we need to.

Ms. Gormley reportedly passed from complications of MS and Diabetes.

When funeral details become available, I will cross-post them.
