Are fire stations the new fraternity house? Seems that way after all of the details of what goes on at Fire Academy in California have recently emerged.
According to The Daily Mail,
An investigation into firefighters having sex on their truck at California’s fire academy has revealed a frat boy lifestyle that included drinking on duty and using state cellphones for hundreds of sexually explicit photos.
A battalion chief now on trial for murder also slapped a female cadet on the buttocks and was not disciplined, according to newly released documents.
The complaints about the Fire Academy in Ione came after a $2 million investigation that started in May after academy instructor Orville Fleming was charged with murder in the death of a former escort who became his girlfriend.
His estranged wife told Sacramento County sheriff’s investigators and reporters that she watched a video that showed the victim having sex with her husband and other firefighters on fire trucks.
She also alleged that the firefighters had sex with prostitutes.
Assistant Chief Mike Ramirez was fired last month for drinking alcohol and allowing others to drink on duty.
He also is accused of failing to take action when Fleming allegedly slapped the female cadet’s behind.
The public records say Fleming, now 56, displayed a partially nude photo of the victim to Ramirez, although the name of his late girlfriend was redacted.
These firefighters were living like they were still college.
