FDNY commissioner denies false response times
NEW YORK (WABC) -- There are new details and new denials from the New York Fire Commissioner on claims that the FDNY intentional miscalculates emergency response times.
The firefighters union says data shows response times were underreported by more than a minute, and these false stats are justifying the proposed closings of 20 fire companies.
Sal Cassano said in a statement, "I have always strongly supported reporting complete and accurate response time information and the department has always been thoroughly transparent about how it calculates response times."
