The fire department has been a beacon for those with a desire to change.
The department has taken on new challenges, including a new $400 million fire station that will replace the old fire station.
And now, there are plans to expand the department’s workforce.
The New York City Fire Department is now making more than $2.8 billion in salary and benefits from the new $600 million, nine-year deal it signed with General Electric, which makes the company’s new GE-branded building at 1 World Trade Center.
That deal is worth more than a million times what the department earned in 2012.
That’s because the city has more than doubled its workforce in the past two years, bringing the department to more than 2,000 employees.
The firefighting department is also hiring, with nearly 900 hires expected this year, up from about 300 last year.
The Department of Homeland Security will pay the $1.9 million a year for firefighters who are eligible for overtime pay, and the department will pay $4,200 to firefighters who work overtime, according to a statement from the department.
The city’s fire service has also been growing, according the city’s Fire Protection District, which oversees the department and provides services to about 5 million people.
In 2017, the district spent $4.7 million on the fire service, according data from the New York Fire Department.
That increase comes after the district cut its budget by $3.6 million in the 2017 fiscal year.
