Firefighters Suspended For Sex At Fire Station Fire Department Says It Is Disappointed

POSTED: 5:53 pm PST March 10, 2005 UPDATED: 6:13 pm PST March 10, 2005

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- KCRA 3 has learned that two Sacramento Metro firefighters -- a man and a woman -- have been suspended for having sex in their firehouse.

Fire officials said that both firefighters, one of them a department veteran, have already admitted to sexual activity inside Metro Fire Station No. 23 on Greenback Lane within the past 30 days, according to fire officials.

"We did have a couple of employees involved in inappropriate activities, sexual in nature, and they were then brought in for an interview to process this complaint," said Sacramento Metro Fire Department Spokesman Assistant Chief Jim Hartley.

"The discipline that was imposed was five days off for each individual. Now, that would be five shifts off, which is a 24-hour shift," Hartley said.

That's equivalent to a 15-day suspension.

Sacramento Metro fire officials told KCRA 3 that this is the first time they have ever had to deal with a disciplinary situation involving sexual activity inside one of their firehouses, and that they are keenly disappointed by the firefighters' actions.

"We're held to a higher standard. And when things like this occur, it affects everyone. And that's why we take this so seriously and why we wanted to make sure we sent the correct message," Hartley said.

The Sacramento Metro Fire Department covers all of the unincorporated areas of Sacramento County, plus the cities of Rancho Cordova and Citrus Heights.

Discussion: What Do You Think?

The firefighter scandal is just the latest to hit Sacramento. The first involved the Sacramento City Fire Department and the "Porn Star Costume Ball" incident last July, when a woman accused an on-duty firefighter of sexual assault.

Other firefighters were accused of drinking on duty, missing a fire call and lying to investigators. There was also a joyriding investigation. Firefighters were accused of cruising downtown Sacramento bars, picking up women and taking civilians to fires.

Most recently, a female firefighter resigned, and three men were fired for having group sex at the firehouse.

Where is a hanging judge when you need one?

/ Seriously, I fret at the moral spinelessness of many of those who are charged with--and paid to--protect our society. This is abdication of duty, breach of oath of office, breach of public trust. Prison plus restitution is what should be required.

In most towns, firefighters are paid by tax dollars. It sort of makes it someone's business.

Absolutely. Except for the volunteers, these are PAID PUBLIC SERVANTS, not STUD SERVICES.

Fire fighters (hopefully) have a lot of down time. They often do 24 hour shifts.

It seems to me that if they stay "hot" when there's no fire that's a good thing...

Well, as shibumi alluded in post #3, at least some of them will already be on or near the pole when the alarm comes in.

Conservative approach: Fire them (pun intended).

Who do think's doing the snitching?

Those who prefer a "don't ask, don't tell" approach to relations at the firehouse or "redblooded 'merican men" who are -- by all indications where comments on FR, much less this nation's porn receipts are concerned -- unmoved by the prospect of getting some with a co-worker or firehouse groupie?

Just curious. Maybe it's all the beds. During my stint in the convention industry, it became clear that the hotel people were literally the worst skanks in the business. My boss and I had a discussion on that once ... we figured it was being surrounded by all those beds.

In any case, I don't know another industry -- besides the military whose Personal Space women also have invaded -- where offices romances and Christmas Party hijinks consistently result in such public "send a message" penalties. There must be a reason.

Yep! As long as they do a fast c.... interruptus during an alarm I wouldn't mind at all. This is something nobody external has to bother with. Since they did not neglect their duties as two regular fireworkers all public attention is just another form of pathological voyeurism.

Do you know how much cops and firefighters hate it when you say that "I pay your salary"? You don't pay their salary, you pay taxes. You aren't their boss and you have no authority to speak of where their policies or discipline is concerned.
Apparently, these particular firefighters weren't discreet about their encounters or there was just some sex-starved fireman that was jealous.
The only reason this made the news is that some socialist MF decided that it was a good way to "bring down" some of our heroes, i.e., the people that save you when your a$$ is in the fire.

Yah. I do. They hate it as much as the bus drivers hate the folks who put in their county-paid tokens to ride, then rag on the drivers, and leave their garbage behind for the driver to dispose of at the next lay-over.

Don't get me started on "public servants" because you'll be here all night.

That is basically true now since they've formed these commie clubs called unions. The people in China have no say over their government employees either.

"these commie clubs called unions"

I think Lek Walesa might disagree with your assessment of unions being Communist, since that's how he fought Communism very bravely, AND WON. The problem isn't with unions, you're just used to seeing unions at work in the U.S. for the last three decades. They are corrupt and have been marginally successful in corrupting individuals that we trust as part of our government.
BTW, the government I speak of is "Of the people, By the people and For the people.

911 makes fireman come.(^)

The unreported and I think main point to this incident is male/female firefighters working and sleeping in the same building.

Physical abilities alone restrict (most) female firefighters from doing the firefighting aspect of the job adequately, though they do fine during EMS operations.

I'm sure this type of situation happens all over he country. Where a veteran fireman and a young female firefighter end up romantically involved after working 24hr shifts for a while.

The natural escalation is to heated up and start going after it after hours somewhere in the station.

Where I work we have had this same thing happen, though the two ended up married and working at different stations. The female ended up involved again with another fireman at the other station and was caught in the act. Nearly caused a divorce, but didn't.

At our station we built a separate room and bath in case we have women assigned, but I personally will transfer if they stay permanent, just to avoid the hassle.

Its not their fault. Women can't resist me.
