The scandal-scarred son of former FDNY Commissioner Salvatore Cassano was suspended from his position as a probationary firefighter Wednesday– after he was busted for trespassing at a Jersey Shore home, police sources said.

Joseph Cassano — who resigned in disgrace from his FDNY EMS job in 2013 after writing a series of racist and misogynistic tweets — may have already squandered his second chance with the FDNY, sources said.

He was hit with a summons over the weekend after falling asleep on a deck chair at the Jersey Shore, sources said.

Because he’s a probationary firefighter, that alleged transgression could get him canned, sources said.

Cassano, 28, was an emergency medical technician when he posted a series of tweets saying he liked Jews as much as Hitler and that the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. could “kick rocks.”

He also wrote, “Getting sick of picking up all these Obama lovers and taking them to the hospital because their medicare pays for an ambulance and not a cab.”

Because he quit before he was fired, Cassano was allowed to rejoin EMS in 2016, and graduated from the Fire Academy on April 18

Within days of graduating, he was moved from Engine 247 in Borough Park, Brooklyn, to Engine 162/Ladder 82 in Great Kills, Staten Island.
