NEW YORK (AP) - New York City’s fire department has a beefed-up response team ready for the weekend storm.

The FDNY said Friday it will have an extra 500 personnel on duty during the storm.

There will be about 117 extra ambulance tours on the streets. That fleet includes 74 four-wheel-drive vehicles. All of the ambulances will have chains.

The city is deploying 119 probationary EMTs to work as a third ambulance crew member.

Special units have expertise working in flood areas and with downed trees.
