Mayor Bloomberg, FDNY Commissioner Nicholas Scopetta and a host of New York's Bravest and EMS brass cut the ribbon today on a new state-of-the-art EMS Station in Carroll Gardens. The 8,150 square foot facility will be home to 7 ambulances and their crews.
About the $4.7 million dollar converted warehouse, located at 347 Bond Street, Mayor Bloomberg said, "No calling is more important than saving lives and no one does that better than New York City’s EMS Command. This great, new facility will help them better fulfill that mission."
Commish Scopetta added, "Every inch of this facility will be put to the best possible use – to get to emergencies faster than ever before."
The new station will cover Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill and Brooklyn Heights.
