The Real Rudy: no-bid contract endangers FDNY on 9/11.

In a report examining the response to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the U.S. Fire Administration determined that on-scene “communications were a serious problem” in terms of establishing “control of the incident.” When then-New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani sought to replace the faulty radios used in 1993, he awarded a no-bid contract to Motorola, which again provided faulty radios. Today, Brave New Films has released a web video detailing the negative impact Giuliani’s no-bid decision had on firefighters on 9/11. Watch it:

Once Motorola was given the contract, the price jumped from $1.4 million to $14 million. Sign a petition demanding an investigation of the inadequate radios HERE.
