With the push to get more minority recruits to take the firefighter exam, the Vulcan society was out in Brooklyn earlier this week, urging people to get on the list in time for today’s deadline.

According to the FDNY, blacks made up only five percent of the last graduating class of firefighters.

This year, the numbers are improving.

As of Wednesday, 22,000 applicants had applied to be a part of the department. Of those, 15 and a half percent are black.

For more information on the firefighters test, call 311 or long on to nyc.gov/DCAS.
