"Stay Alert & Stay Safe!"The NYPD is taking the current threat of terrorism seriously. In addition, there is a concern for protests in Times Square and other locations coinciding with Tuesday's elections. Therefore, the department has increased staffing to 5 firefighter engines in all 1st and 3rd Division companies from Monday - Wednesday.
Additional staffing may be increased if warranted. Additional units will be activated as well as the Borough Task Force team.
Those members that work in a division task force company will be offered OT in the Borough Task Force. It will be other OT not subject to any redlines.
