Emergency doctors will be equipped with bulletproof vests

The New York City Council unanimously passed a bill requiring the FDNY to provide all emergency medical personnel with bulletproof vests. Supporters say it's necessary because threats against emergency personnel have become more frequent.

The bill gained support after emergency medical technician Natasha Nembhard described how a patient attacked her with a knife.

The regulation applies solely to FDNY employees and does not affect emergency physicians employed by private companies or hospitals.
