FDNY EMS Chief Demoted In Wake Of Snow Response

first_img“I believe that there were some system failures that were certainly beyond his pay grade, and that he simply did not have the authority to make decisions or not make decisions,” Bahnken said. There was also an investigation into sanitation workers responsible for keeping streets plowed, a factor that created mayhem for ambulances and fire trucks during the blizzard, the report said.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said last week he was “extremely dissatisfied with the way our emergency response systems performed.” Patrick Bahnken, president of the Uniformed EMT’s, Paramedics and Fire Inspectors FDNY, told the Times Peruggia was unfairly being singled out.last_img read more
