For Immediate Release: June 18, 2014

Statement from Steve Cassidy, President-Uniformed Firefighters Association of Greater New York on Gas Leaks:

“A gas leak is an emergency situation that requires an FDNY response. Although the FDNY is on-target to respond to more emergencies this year than ever before, it is critical that firefighters respond to any credible reports of a gas leak. The March explosion in East Harlem shows just how deadly and destructive a gas leak can be. New York City Firefighters have always been on the front line of safety and will continue to answer the call as we have always done.”
