Dekalb Firefighters Drunk on the Job?

Posted by Richard Lawson | Jan 19, 2011 | 0 Comments

One of the DeKalb firefighters accused of reporting to work intoxicated went on emergency calls against department advice.

The firefighter went on two calls in Stone Mountain for an accident and another for emergency help on January 12 during the snowstorm that hit most of Georgia. Officials are saying he did not drive a vehicle during those times. 

The worker has been placed on unpaid administrative leave and three other coworkers were sent home after their supervisors sent them home after they received reports they had been drinking. 

The men had been at a bar in Decatur the night before and were not scheduled to work again until 7am January 12 but were called in to work early due to the snowstorm. 

The Dekalb Fire Department is currently reviewing the incident before going any further.
