Joseph Martin is a paramedic for the Indian River Ambulance Service, a proud Nothern New Yorker and this month’s Hometown Hero. Martin was born in Philadelphia and has lived in the community since.
When he was a child, family members were in the medical field and it piqued his interest. Working in the community in which he was raised has given him the opportunity to care for friends and neighbors. Martin said he loves being able to help.
