A junior volunteer firefighter is accused of putting a hidden camera in the women’s restroom at one of the largest fire stations in Gaston County, North Carolina.
Residents and co-workers are outraged that this juvenile firefighter violated the trust of those he worked right beside. Crowders Mountain Volunteer Fire and Rescue also serves as home base for an EMS team, which includes female medics. The camera was reportedly pulled before anyone could be recorded.
The firefighter who put it there was removed from membership when the incident happened back in October. A report was taken but no charges were filed– according to Channel 9.
A firefighter who would do that is not welcome here, residents said. He goes into people’s homes and they are expected to trust him, they say.
Former chief Mike Moss says a fire station is supposed to be a safe place. He says it’s troubling that there are still unanswered questions about the case seven months later. “He should not be allowed to return to any fire service,” Moss said.
The firefighter apparently reapplied to return to the dept. after 6 months, but then recently withdrew his application. The fire chief did not say whether that firefighter was still answering calls after his release.
A board of directors meeting is being held to determine what to do from here and to figure out why criminal charges were never filed.
