In Richmond, Maine a firefighter is claiming harassment after he arrived at the station for a call to find his boots filled with water. According to Keith Edwards with the Kennebec Journal, Town Manager Marian Anderson sent a letter to every member of the Richmond Fire Department with notification that a formal investigation is underway that will result in disciplinary action and possible criminal charges:

The town “is committed to providing a work environment that ensures that every employee is treated with dignity and respect,” she wrote. “Workplace harassment is a serious matter that the town of Richmond does not tolerate.”

Anderson said Wednesday that she could not discuss details because it is a personnel matter. She acknowledged, however, that the town has retained an investigator, whom she declined to identify.

The incident occurred on August 3, a day when the Richmond FD handled six calls due to a storm.

From the Richmond Fire Department website:

The Richmond Fire Department is made up of 25 call firefighters. We provide 24-hour protection every day. Since no two emergency calls are the same, we are prepared to handle a variety of emergency response situations.
