A Brooklyn ambulance company controlled by a subsidiary of "Wonder Woman of Wall Street" Lynn Tilton's private-equity firm filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy yesterday, disrupting the city's emergency-response system in a move that could result in the loss of 1,200 jobs. The company, TransCare, has been operating 27 ambulances for 81 shifts daily in the Bronx and Manhattan to some of New York City's largest hospitals, including Mount Sinai, NYU Langone Medical Center and Montefiore Medical Center. The New York City Fire Department said Wednesday night that it had prepared for such a bankruptcy and would make up for TransCare's absence by providing additional FDNY units on overtime and surveying other private ambulance operators to fill the gap.
