Over 100 pieces of apparatus drove by Samraitan Hospital in Troy for a "Thank You" parade for the doctors and nurses at the hospital Sunday, April 19th.

Local fire, police and EMS vehicles from various agencies all over Rensselaer County gathered to say thank you to the staff members at the hospital who are also working on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This large event was organized in one week by Jeff Belschwinder of Sidewinder Photography.

A massive tribute to all those working on the front lines to make sure what they do isn't taken for granted.
