FDNY Will Compete at Monster Jam With Its Own Gigantic Truck

NEW YORK - NOVEMBER 19: A fire truck sits outside of a Brooklyn fire house on November 19, 2010 in in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced widespread budget cuts and layoffs due to the city`s budget deficit of 3.3 billion for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2011.With a city workforce that totals 300,000, the mayor plans to eliminate 10,000 jobs in the next 18 months through a combination of layoffs and attrition. Other possible cuts include the closing of some fire department companies at night, layoffs of employees at public libraries in Brooklyn and more than 6,000 teaching jobs.

Afterward, Mayor Bloomberg will commandeer the beast for personal excursions now that he’s forfeited his helicopter privileges.
