fire fighter arrested for not doing what he told
#1
a California Highway Patrol officer arresting Chula Vista firefighter Jacob Gregoire, 36, after refusing to move a fire truck positioned to shield rescue workers and accident victims from fast moving traffic along the side of a busy freeway.

This just tells me the mind set of some of the cops. Really a guy busy helping someone and this is your responce to his no?

As I said, mind set. This cops actions speak louder than words..

They have all that room in their cells since they aren't arresting illegals.

This sadly happens more than reported I believe. As a firefighter I hear about it from time to time. Shame that even professional courtesy between us and police is falling quickly to the way side.

Agreed.

What I don't understand is why the cop wanted the emergency vehicle that was protecting the scene to be moved. Did he want his vehicle to be the one to be hit if an idiot crashes through the scene that badly?

UPDATE:

http://www.statter911.com/2014/02/05/chi...ash-scene/

Quote:There are now additional details on the incident Tuesday night where a member of the California Highway Patrol handcuffed and detained a firefighter with the Chula Vista Fire Department. It happened around 9:30 p.m. on I-805.

Reporters have spoken about the incident with Chula Vista Fire Department Chief Dave Hanneman. The fire department is citing scene safety as the reason Engineeer Jacob Gregoire, a member of the department for more than 12 years, refused an order by the CHP officer to move his rig from the center divide and instead continued to assist with aiding a crash victim. A San Diego deputy chief acknowledges that while CHP has authority by law on California’s highways, the police officer had never assumed command of the incident (more below).

Pretty friggin ridiculous on the part of Officer Chippie.

Securing the scene and using the engine to shield rescue personnel and crash victims is a priority for EMS. Additional news info seems to show that's what they were doing.

What a maroon.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

Unless things have changed in Pa when fire companies are dispatched the fire chief is in charge of the scene. I was under a great chief back in the day Dave "smoke" Tobias and he never let PSP push us around.

There is no one automatically in charge at an incident. In a best case scenario, all the first responders will be able to be adult and work together to get things done. When it get cloudy you need to look at the nature of the incident. Is it a fire incident, a medical one, or a police one? Generally this will answer who should have incident command.

As far as this incident went...totally retarded to say the least.. who cares how screwed up traffic is...this too will pass.
