FDNY recruiting residents in Brooklyn

NEW YORK - The Fire Department of New York is looking for a few good men.

Recruiters from the FDNY will be in the borough today looking for those willing to join its ranks. Officials say they are recruiting more minority candidates after a lawsuit filed earlier claimed the department's entrance exam discriminated against minorities.

In Brooklyn, recruitment stations have been set up at the Kings Plaza Shopping center from noon. to 8 p.m, at the Crown Heights subway station from 10 a.m. to 6 pm. and at CM Mealy's Brevoort Summer Concert Series from 5:30 this evening to 8 p.m.
