I searched FDNY’s site and couldn’t find how a private citizen can subscribe to this newsletter…

…but let’s say I’m not exactly shocked. Though I can’t imagine the argument for this based on “sources and methods” or the “adversary.”

But I would love for someone to prove me wrong.

To be clear, I’d love to be proven wrong regarding citizen access to the reports.

I don’t expect to get a compelling argument about the “sensitive” nature of the information provided.
