"It's really tough out there.  An average day was 4000 calls a day.  Maybe in the summer we would peak at around 5,000 calls a day.  Here we are in March we are doing  well over 7,000 calls.  We were short staffed before the crisis. Now with members going out sick, we have less members with a higher call volume." "We have asked for testing for EMS and all the members of the FDNY from day one."   Vincent Variali, FDNY EMS Lieutenant and President of the Uniformed EMS Officer's Union Local 3621, FDNY
