Katrina Pay Update
We have completed mediation with the city for our back pay. We agreed to an amount that the city will pay us for our response to Katrina. We were able to get two extensions to get paid immediately, but we were unable to find another method for payment. The consent judgment was filed on 4/6/23 by the City so we are now in line for payment. The City attorney has indicated that the list for payment is 3 to 5 years long.
Watch “History of the New Orleans Fire Department with Nikki Caruso: The Formative Years, 1771-1922”
Nikki Caruso, daughter of Captain Barry Caruso (Ret) has done a lot of research on the early times of the NOFD. This is very interesting and you can see it on YouTube at https://youtu.be/9EWaGu5iCdM
