Up Close: 911 System
NEW YORK (WABC) -- New York City spent nearly $2 billion to modernize the 911 emergency response system.
Questions over response to a fire in the Bronx this past week has the firefighters union saying enough is enough.
The union wants a judge to stop the Bloomberg Administration from making any more changes.
But the administration says the union has it all wrong.
Should New Yorkers be worried whether help will arrive on time the next time they call 911?
Joining us is Deputy Mayor for Operations Cas Holloway.
Also with us, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer.
He was a shoo-in to become New York City's next comptroller, until former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer joined the race.
The newly crowned underdog talks about his fight to stop Spitzer's comeback.
Plus, more than $200 million raised for Superstorm Sandy relief is still unspent.
Why are charities holding onto the money?
New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman tells about his investigation.
