                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: June 17, 2008

   By the District Director, New York Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to New York City Fire Department DBA
       Bureau of Fire Communications, the owner of antenna structure #
       1207304 in Staten Island, New York.

    2. On May 23, 2008, an agent of the Commission's New York Office
       attempted to inspect antenna structure # 10207304 at 65 Slosson
       Avenue, Staten Island, 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 within 24 hours of completion of construction and/or
   dismantlement. The owner must also immediately notify the Commission upon
   any change in structure height or change in ownership information." At the
   time of the attempted inspection, the FCC's Antenna Structure Registration
   Database showed that antenna structure # 10207304 was registered to New
   York City Fire Department. The agent found, however, that the tower had
   been dismantled. New York City Fire Department failed to notify the FCC of
   the dismantlement of the antenna structure # 10207304.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, New York City Fire
       Department must submit a written statement concerning this matter
       within twenty (20) days of release of this Notice. The response must
       fully explain each violation, must contain a statement of the specific
       action(s) taken to correct each violation and preclude recurrence, and
       should include a time line for completion of pending corrective
       actions. The response must be complete in itself and signed by a
       principal or officer of the tower owner. All replies and documentation
       sent in response to this Notice should be marked with the File No. and
       NOV No. specified above, and mailed to the following address:

   Federal Communications Commission

    5. The Privacy Act of 1974 requires that we advise you that the

       including any information disclosed in your reply, to determine what,
       if any, enforcement action is required to ensure compliance. Any false
