NEW YORK — The NYPD is responding to bomb threats at all five of Manhattan’s FDNY EMS stations Sunday afternoon, according to law enforcement sources.

The threats, which were made about 3:30 p.m., led to brief evacuations of some of Manhattan’s five EMS stations, sources said. Police responded to similar threats at two EMS stations in the Bronx, those sources said.

“There are no injuries, and as individual sites are investigated, the threats at each one have been unfounded,” FDNY spokesman James Long said.

The five Manhattan stations are Station 4 by the South St. Seaport, Station 7 on W. 23rd St. near 10th Ave., Station 8 at Bellevue Hospital, Station 10 on FDR Drive near E. 98th St., and Station 13 on W. 172nd St. near Amsterdam Ave.

An NYPD spokesman confirmed Sunday that police were investigating the threats but could provide no additional information.
