Seventeen current and former employees of Las Vegas Fire & Rescue–including the chief and his command staff–have been notified to save their personal communications because they could be defendants or witnesses in a likely lawsuit after a female firefighter’s sex video was shared within the department.

This is the latest in a series of sex scandals Las Vegas Fire & Rescue has dealt with over the last two years. The others include, a captain being criminally charged for having sex in a firehouse with a prostitute who was younger than 14, an EMT publicly claiming she had sex in more than a dozen fire stations over the last decade and the disciplining of a group of firefighters following a cover-up over a firefighter having sex in a station.

In this latest case, the female firefighter says she had sent the video to her ex-boyfriend, a firefighter in Henderson, Nevada (it’s possible the woman was seeing the Henderson firefighter at the time she sent the video, but it’s hard to tell for sure from the way the article was written). Michael Scott Davidson at Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the firefighter says her video had been shared during an EMS training event in June.

Michael Scott Davidson, Las Vegas Review-Journal:

The woman learned about the video days later, when a male firefighter told her that he overheard other employees talking about it. The ex-boyfriend told the woman he did not have the video or send it to anybody, the complaint states.

Fire Battalion Chief James Suarez told the woman in September that some employees were disciplined, but that nothing illegal had occurred and it would take time for the incident “to blow over,” according to the complaint.

Four days later, the woman filed a complaint with the city’s human resources department.

“I no longer feel comfortable at work,” she wrote.
