36-year-old NYC fire­fight­er Derek Floyd passed away on April 15 due to car­diac arrest, just four months after being laid off by the city. 

Floy­d’s dis­missal was part of a larg­er ini­tia­tive to reduce staff and real­lo­cate fund­ing for hous­ing and ser­vices for the influx of migrants in New York City.

Floyd, who had been a fire­fight­er for over a decade, was the pri­ma­ry provider for his fam­i­ly and leaves behind a wife and two children. 

His untime­ly death has raised ques­tions about the city’s han­dling of the migrant cri­sis and the impact of bud­get cuts on essen­tial ser­vices like the fire department.

As the fam­i­ly mourns their loss, the com­mu­ni­ty has come togeth­er to sup­port them through a GoFundMe cam­paign and an out­pour­ing of condolences. 

The trag­ic cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing Floy­d’s pass­ing serve as a sober­ing reminder of the far-reach­ing effects of pol­i­cy deci­sions and the impor­tance of pri­or­i­tiz­ing the well-being of those who serve our communities.
