Last week Rocky Robinson, Founder of the Bed-Stuy Volunteer Ambulance Corps was presented with a $100,000 ceremonial check from Councilman Robert Cornegy. In a statement, the Councilman said “The Bed-Stuy Volunteer Ambulance Corps is in the streets with us when we need them. When NYPD Officers Liu and Ramos were shot, Bed-Stuy Volunteer Ambulance Corps was first on the scene. When shots rang out near J’ouvert, the Bed-Stuy Volunteer Ambulance Corps was there to give Carey Gabay a fighting chance. Commander Rocky Robinson and the team he leads are always there for our community and I’m here for them.
“Rocky, you’ve already heard the news, but today I want everyone to know about the one hundred thousand dollars set aside to support the good work you do every day saving lives and training up young men and young women to follow in your footsteps. You exemplify the spirit of service in this community, I’m proud to support you.”
