as a retired professional fire officer, this is another example of the stupidity of todays firefighters at some houses and depts. This is only second to the dumb ass mayor and firefighters that stood by for a lack of 75.00, in fees and let a mans home burn to the ground....

First fire this piece of shit and his buddys at the Spalding co. fire dept...Alos fire the chief, he is cuppable also.....And fire the mayor and members of the dept. that were worried about 75.00....

It is scum like you that make all fire depts. look bad....

This is even paid firefighters...I could see this coming from some vounteer depts, but not paid....

Release the names and go to hell you low life insensitive scum of the fire service......

I hope the father takes care of business with you pond scum, after the co/city your faces to the public, you pieces of beer makes me a bad ass, posers...your as bad as gangbangers...

How devastating this must have been for the family to watch. Just think, with today's technology, her kids may find this on the internet one day and see it. That is very unprofessional and insensitive!

As a resident of this county involved and a paid firefighter/emt for 13 yrs. with another county nearby, I have heard talk from other residence around town wondering if it is leagal for the firefighter involved to have done this. Some rumors are that the county is denying any laws were broken. My take on it is this.
As a paid firefighter and 1st responder on this call, the victim who passed away in the wreck was this firefighter's patient. Therefore, at the very least he broke PATIENT CONFIDENTIALLITY, along with other HIPPA violations regaurding PATIENT CONFIDENTIALLITY. I'm hoping the county trains on these laws in fire recruit school. The County and fire department should be held responsible for the firefighter's actions. This was at least a rookie, I hope, with no experience. I have questions myself that I'd like to follow up with the county admin... As for the co-workers NOT involved in this drama, I hope your reputations aren't tarnished by this idiot. Tighten your belts boys, gonna be a bumpy ride.

A fire fighter has a sworn duty to protect and serve just like a police officer in life and in death, bad judgement on his part thier should be consequences for his lack of judgement

I feel that the firefighter was so stunned at the horrific accident that he video taped it to show some people because he couldnt believe what he had seen. I really dont think it was done as a joke to hurt anyone, but as a healthcare professional myself i feel that he should have been mindful of what he was doing because he is a first responder and he did violate patient confidetiality. I feel he should have consequences for what he did, I dont no what they should be, but he should be held responsible for his actions. I am a parent and I cant imagine what these parents are going through, but I will pray for you and may god bless you.As for the firefighter may god bless you also, learn from your mistake.
