FDNY recruiting residents in the Bronx

NEW YORK - The Fire Department of New York is looking for a few good men.

Recruiters from the FDNY will be in the borough today looking for those willing to join its ranks. Officials say they are recruiting more minority candidates after a lawsuit filed earlier claimed the department's entrance exam discriminated against minorities.

In the Bronx, recruitment stations have been set up outside the Fordham Road subway station from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. A second location has been set up at the Workforce One career center from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
