NEW YORK (CBS 2) – More than 10,000 Ground Zero first responders have agreed to a settlement with the city.

Ninety-five percent of the workers who were exposed to toxic dust after 9/11 voted to accept the deal in which they will share at least $625 million.

Police, firefighters and other responders said the city didn’t give them adequate equipment to protect them against the toxic dust.
