Fire department reviewing policies

BY CORIANNE EGAN cegan@paducahsun.com

After two separate incidents in December that ended in the resignation of one Paducah firefighter and the investigation of another, the Paducah Fire Department is reviewing work-related policies and procedures.

Paducah police were called to Fire Station 4 on Jackson Street on Wednesday for a fight reported by someone driving past the station. When officers arrived, firefighter Brian K. Waid, 49, and Edward A. Ladd, 55, were being separated by other firefighters at the station. 

Paducah Fire Chief Steve Kyle said he was made aware of the fight immediately and began an investigation himself. The city expects to have a full report done early next week, City Manager Jeff Pederson said.

A second and unrelated incident also led to the resignation of firefighter Robby Greif, a six-year veteran of the department. Pederson and Kyle did not elaborate on the investigation, only to say they were reviewing possible misconduct. Greif submitted his resignation Thursday.

Kyle said he intends to review work policies at the fire stations to effectively communicate rules and codes of conduct.

"We want to get the investigation done quickly," Kyle said. "We are working as swiftly and decisively as we can. At the same time, employees have rights too. We don't want to overreact and push. We want to look at every angle and get it right."
