Life is not always kind in Philadelphia, as evidenced by the daily headlines about gun violence, car crashes, overdoses and building collapses. But when moments of disaster strike, the city is blessed with a reliable fleet of trained professionals and selfless volunteers, always ready and eager to help.

In this edition of Billy Penn‘s Who’s Next, we’re looking to highlight Philadelphia’s most dedicated young first responders — and we need your help to do it.

Who’s Next is a regular showcase of dedicated up-and-comers who are passionate about Philadelphia. Our goal? To track the city’s next generation of leaders and influencers. In the four years since we founded this series, we’ve been honored to feature more than 500 outstanding under-40 trailblazers in a variety of fields.

So, who do you know that’s making waves while resolving Philadelphia’s emergencies? We’re looking for your dedicated EMTs and outreach workers, compassionate police officers, loyal firefighters, neighborhood leaders handing out Narcan — and whomever else you can think of.

To nominate someone to be featured on Billy Penn‘s Who’s Next: First Responders list, fill out the form below — or send an email to mwinberg@billypenn.com with “Who’s Next” in the subject line.

Please submit nominations on or before March 22.
