LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two Pleasure Ridge Park firefighters were fired Wednesday, after the fire department board found they had violated policies that included "zero tolerance" of alcohol possession and consumption.
The firings come in the midst of ongoing investigations into firefighters' behavior at PRP Station 5 on Manslick Road during Crusade for Children activities on June 2.
Department trustees voted unanimously to dismiss firefighters Jerry Keener and Tom Sills. Each was accused of three counts of violating policy relating to alcohol, professional behavior and conduct, and Crusade for Children responsibilities.
Fire Chief Vincent Smith told WDRB News that alcohol was on station premises that day. The department suspended eight firefighters in July. Other disciplinary cases against others are still pending, Smith said in a statement Thursday. It was not clear when the board would take up those cases.
The suspensions forced temporary closing of Station 5, the least busy of PRP stations, Smith said last month. Last year, the station handled 96 of the department's 3,500 runs. The department is starting a new recruit class this month, Smith said.
Chief Smith, Keener and Sills were not available for comment Thursday.
