Check out this photo collage of pictures that Roanoke County put together for the Department. The photos are from the entire year 2009.

This has got to be a joke. Apparently, one of Roanoke County’s Chiefs has said that any County firefighters who are hurt playing football for the team being established will be let go once they run out of time.

I sure hope that this is a joke.

What if someone gets hurt doing something else? What if a firefighter is injured in a vehicle accident? Playing soccer? Gets hit by a meteor?

You get my point. What are the past practices for extended injury/illness in the County. Is this normal consequences for being unable to work and running out of time?

Any County FF’s want to give me their point of view?
