State Senator John J. Bonacic (R/I/C - Mount Hope) attended the 2nd Annual Dedication Ceremony of the New York State EMS "Tree of Life" memorial on Wednesday, May 18th at the Empire State Plaza in Albany. Ms. Robin Daniels, a service member of the American Legion Ambulance in Eldred, New York, was killed while responding to an emergency. Her name and the Ambulance Service name were honored as it was made a permanent part of the memorial during the ceremony.

"The men and women who sacrifice their time and sometimes their lives to help others are awesome," stated Senator Bonacic. "It is only proper to recognize the selfless people who put their lives on the line everyday. I was pleased to join in honoring these special men and women, particularly Ms. Daniels and American Legion Ambulance of Eldred."

Senator Bonacic was joined by Carl "CJ" Boyce, Charlie Myers, and Ruth Myers of American Legion Ambulance.
