EVAC Participates in Autism Awareness Event

By Chief of Operations Nick Louros
April 18, 2018

Last year, New Rochelle PBA's President Christopher Greco challenged agencies all over Westchester County to help spread Autism Awareness by creating the New Rochelle Police Autism Patch Challenge. The challenge started locally but has since grown nationwide. Det. Greco's son (also Christopher) is severely autistic and non verbal, and this year he wanted to so something special for his son's birthday.

Earlier today, members of the Eastchester Volunteer Ambulance Corps joined the New Rochelle Police Department, along with several other agencies from around Westchester County, to help celebrate Chris' birthday and spread awareness for autism. Police, Fire, and EMS units lined up in front of New Rochelle Police Headquarters and embarked down North Avenue to William B. Ward Elementary School where they met up with the Greco family and all of Chris' classmates. They spent over an hour at the school, where the students were able to play with a local K9 unit, take tours of all the emergency vehicles, and even have the opportunity to try on and play with some of the equipment. Overall, this was a very successful event and our hats go off to the Greco Family and the Ward School for putting it all together.

If you are interested in learning more about Christoper's story, or would like to donate to his foundation, please visit their website at http://christophersvoice.org/

Lastly, a very big Happy Birthday, Christopher from all our friends at Eastchester EMS! We look forward to celebrating next year with you as well!
