Well done to the crews. I have a Question for Gary Cote re; the Kent Hospital worker and Coventry fire fighter Where are we on the Coventry Fire District/Anthony Station investigation of mis-conduct? Gary Cote stated he would fire the employee involved and we have heard NOTHING. The hospital employee involved was fired after their investigation. . So is Cote using the Bill Clinton defense that oral interaction in the back of a department rescue vehicle is OK????? Maybe Cote is protecting one of his Union supporters. Maybe Cote thinks its ok to take part in this type of activity while on the job and using a department rescue as a rolling Notell Motel. We dont Know and thats the point. . Gary is silent on the matter, and silence is acceptance . Come on Gary Cote, you profess to be a family man of morals and good character, so why have you taken NO ACTION. . My guess is Union pressure from his supporters. . Prove me Wrong PLEASE!!!!!!!!

As I mentioned in my email, I will look into this again. It has clearly fallen to the wayside since the alleged incident occurred due to other coverage.
