New York Firefighters to Provide Technical Cooperation to Quito

NEW YORK The Fire Department of the City of New York will provide technical advice and training to the emergency services agencies in Ecuadors capital, Quito Mayor Mauricio Rodas told EFE.

The cooperation will take place under an agreement Rodas signed here Tuesday with New Yorks first deputy fire commissioner, Robert Turner, and FDNY Chief James Leonard.

It will be the first time the Quito firefighters receive technical cooperation from those in New York, one of the most recognized (fire departments) in the world, Rodas said.

The collaboration is to begin immediately as Quito prepares to host the UN Habitat III conference in October, the mayor said.

Leonard said FDNY personnel will share with Quito firefighters what they learned after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, about dealing with emergency incidents that are prolonged in time.
