FDNY's firefighter exam application deadline looming

THE BRONX - The deadline to apply for the FDNY's firefighter exam is tomorrow, and the department is particularly interested in African-American and female applicants. Fire Commissioner Salvatore Cassano says so far, 48 percent of the applicants have been people of color and 7 percent have been women, which is more than ever before, but Cassano says he wants to get these numbers even higher. The FDNY held about 6,500 recruiting events across the city over the past year and a half.
