Congressman Joseph Crowley and City Councilmembers James Vacca and Criminal Justice Committee Chair Elizabeth Crowley were joined by UFA leaders, Bronx firefighters and community leaders and spoke out against budget cuts and firehouse closings.

The event took place earlier today, Tuesday, March 30, at 10:30 am outside of Engine 70 / Ladder 53 located at 169 Schofield Street on City Island, Bronx.

Ladder 53 was one of the original fire companies threatened with closure by City Hall in 2009. The Mayor has threatened to close at least 20 fire companies and as many as 60 fire companies effective the new fiscal year, which begins July 1, 2010.
