NYC sends health teams to post-Sandy food handouts, rubbing some wrong way


Bobby Eustace, an 11-year veteran with the city’s fire department tells that on Sunday he and his fellow firefighters from Ladder 27 in the Bronx were issued a notice of violation for not maintaining restaurant standards in a tent set up in Breezy Point, Queens, to feed victims and first responders.

“It’s just a little ridiculous. The inspector came up and asked if we were wearing hairnets. I told him, ‘We have helmets. This is a disaster area,'” Eustace told “Then he asked is we had gloves and thermometers [for food]. I said, “Yeah, we have rectal and oral. Which one do you want?’ He wasn’t amused.”

  1. No where in the article does it mention whether or not they had an “Employees Must Wash Hands” sign.


  2. The only thing that could have made this story more awesome was for the fireman to use a thermometer
    rectally on the inspector.
