UFA President Steve Cassidy on WPIX's 'News Close Up with Marvin Scott'

WPIX 11 - April 28, 2015


Several newly hired Black, Latino and Female FDNY Firefighters speak out about the dangers of being a New York City Firefighter and the lack of disability protections for new hires if they are hurt. They ask, "Would you risk your life for $27 a day?" UFA President Steve Cassidy stresses firefighters should not need to worry about getting hurt in the line of duty and should simply be focused on protecting the lives of New Yorkers.
