Big ax looming at the FDNY: Threat of 1,000 layoffs, closing of 62 fire companies
One thousand fireman I think would be the entire Fire Department here in Calgary (pop 1 mill)
The FDNY is bracing for doomsday.
The department will be forced to close a staggering 62 fire companies and lay off more than 1,000 firefighters if the bad-news state budget becomes reality, Commissioner Salvatore Cassano told the City Council Wednesday.
"We would be very, very taxed," warned a grim-faced Cassano. "Our operations would be impacted and every neighborhood in this city would feel the effect."
