This week our First Responder Friday Series salutes a man who not only works full time as a paramedic and teaches others about the profession. But also volunteers with another department too. Meet Brent Rosky from Forestport.

Brent is a Lieutenant at Central Oneida County Volunteer Ambulance Corps where he serves as a paramedic supervisor and paramedic preceptor. This means he not only runs into the face of danger, but shares his knowledge and trains others in the proper way to handle emergencies. On the side, he serves as a volunteer paramedic and firefighter with the Woodgate Volunteer Fire Department in Forestport.

Brent was nominated by Daniel Deluke, himself an EMT and firefighter with several agencies in Central New York. Daniel says Brent "has shown nothing but kindness and devotion to this area and worked tirelessly with Cocvac for the last 12 years coming in for every shift ready to help whoever calls for him.

Daniel thanks for recognizing Brent's hard work and dedication and for what you do too.  Brent, thanks for coming to the rescue of residents in their darkest hours, volunteering with other departments in need of help, and your willingness to share your knowledge and skills with others so they can help too.

Do you know a first responder that deserves to be recognized? Tell us about someone who should be honored in central New York - a firefighter, police officer, EMT, forest ranger, paramedic, DEC officers, military, rescuers or any other person first on the scene.

Include their name, a picture and why they should be recognized during 'First Responder Friday,' presented by Martin, Harding & Mazzotti.

We'll honor one first responder every Friday and as a way to say thank you, we'll give them a bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes.
