“Happy #EMSWeek and thank them for their dedication and service to the citizens of Bayonne during the COVID-19 outbreak,” McCabe said. “I cannot thank these gentlemen enough for their support. It’s truly what makes the City of Bayonne such a special place. We stand arm and arm with our public safety brothers and sisters in this city every day.”

According to the proclamation, McCabe Ambulance has played a vital role in responding to accidents and daily medical emergencies from September 11 to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
