    2. On March 23, 2007, an agent of the Commission's New York Office
       inspected the antenna structure, ASR # 1207302, located at 35 Empire
       Boulevard, Brooklyn, New York, and observed the following violation:

   47 C.F.R. S 17.57: "The owner of an antenna structure for which an Antenna
   Structure Registration Number has been obtained must notify the Commission

   dismantlement (FCC Form 854). The owner must . . . immediately notify the
   Commission using FCC Form 854 upon any change in structure height or
   change in ownership information." Bureau of Fire Communications failed to
   notify the Commission that Antenna Structure Registration Number 1207302
   was dismantled. Subsequent to the inspection, the agent orally notified
   the Bureau of Fire Communication of this violation and as of April 24,
   2007, such notification had not been filed with the FCC.

       action(s) taken to correct each violation and preclude recurrence, and
       should include a time line for completion of pending corrective
       action(s). The response must be complete in itself and signed by a
       principal or officer of Bureau of Fire Communications with personal
       knowledge of the matter. All replies and documentation sent in
