    Another Slap in the Face of the Procession

    Man Firefighter to Chief in just 4 years. I been doing this 32 years and only qualified to be a firefighter for pay.. They let me be Chief for free....

    Seriously this is an sad situation, but antoher that certainly needs to be addressed. It seems of late that nothing but bad news headlines are hitting the streets about Firefighters across the nation. We have to stop the madness.

    Chief Reason is right.......

    Fire Chief charged with heroin possession

    Imagine your incident commander.....at even the simplest of incidents.....being on heroin. This article doesn't imply that.....but, what if?


    DUPONT, Wash. (AP) - DuPont Fire Chief Rick Stillwaugh has been
    suspended from his job and charged with heroin possession.
    Stillwaugh, 34, pleaded innocent Monday in Pierce County
    Superior Court to charges of unlawful possession of a controlled
    substance and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.
    He was released on his own recognizance, over prosecutors'
    protests, by Judge Sergio Armijo and is scheduled for trial in
    August.
    Stillwaugh was arrested at his home Saturday night after
    forcibly terminating a 911 call by his wife during an argument,
    interim city Administrator Bill McDonald said Monday. Stillwaugh
    was booked into Pierce County Jail and released early Sunday
    morning.
    Mayor Penny Drost suspended Stillwaugh on Sunday.
    "He'll get his due process and we'll do a thorough
    investigation," McDonald said.
    On Sunday afternoon, officers went to a motel to give him
    paperwork suspending him from his job, charging documents said.
    He gave the officers permission to search his room, where they
    found syringes and other drug paraphernalia, court papers said.
    After arresting him, they found heroin in his pockets, charging
    documents said.
    No charges were filed over the 911 call because there were no
    allegations of related domestic violence, Deputy Prosecutor Al Rose
    said.
    Stillwaugh had checked himself into a hospital Friday night for
    help getting off prescription painkillers that he'd been taking for
    back pain, McDonald said.
    He checked himself out the next day. When he asked his wife,
    Tammy, for their debit card, she refused and the dispute led to the
    attempted 911 call, McDonald said.
    McDonald said Stillwaugh's wife told police he had been abusing
    drugs.
    Once the DuPont Police Department completes its criminal
    investigation, the Washington State Patrol has agreed to conduct an
    internal investigation for the city, Trooper Kurt Adkinson said.
    Stillwaugh was hired as a firefighter in September 1997 and
    named chief in September 2001, McDonald said.
