Discipline on Fire Commission’s plate

 
The Fire Commission is taking on two disciplinary hearings – in closed session – Thursday evening. One Fire Department employee is appealing the appeal of a two-day suspension on June 20 and 21. The suspension is a rather light one for “disobedience,” but the accused has come up with new factual information to appeal a previous commission decision. Another disciplinary case going before the commission looks a little more serious. It involves an emergency medical technician accused of unauthorized leaves of absence, disobedience, attendance, tardiness, failure to report, and expired EMT certificates and paramedic licenses. Discipline for Fire Department employees used to be a little more transparent, but in the wake of a landmark California Supreme Court case, known as the Copley decision, that made peace officers records confidential, The City decided to keep firefighter discipline confidential as well.
