FIRE COMMISSIONER CASSANO OPENS NEW FDNY EMS STATION IN BROOKLYN

Fire Commissioner Salvatore J. Cassano will cut the ribbon on a new FDNY EMS Station, located at 332 Metropolitan Avenue in Brooklyn on Monday, September 30th at 11 a.m.  EMS Station 35 (Williamsburg Station) will serve the communities of Williamsburg and Greenpoint. 

“As call volume for medical emergencies has continued to grow, including a record-setting 1.3 million calls in 2012, the Department has worked to increase the number of our EMS stations in an effort to further lower response times and position resources where they are most needed,” said Commissioner Cassano.  “Station 35 is the tenth new EMS Station opened by the Department since 2002 and serves to demonstrate the Department’s unwavering commitment to provide the high standard of emergency pre-hospital care that New York City residents deserve.”

EMS Station 35 is a two-story, 12,400-square-foot facility that can house four ambulances and an EMS command vehicle.  Every day, the station will staff 17 ambulance tours and three EMS Officer tours.  The construction features two-stories at the street and one-story at the rear – maintaining the balance of the predominantly two-story profile of the neighborhood. The $12.5 million facility was built by the Department of Design and Construction (DDC) and is the tenth EMS station in Brooklyn.
