THEY were known as the Rat Pack: five renegade firefighters who threatened to burn houses down instead of save them, ran naked through the streets, drove fire trucks while drunk and trashed a whistleblower’s car.
An official investigation found them responsible for a campaign of harassment and intimidation in a NSW country town and recommended disciplinary action.
Instead, the NSW Fire Brigades – already under fire for fostering a culture of ritual abuse exposed by The Sunday Telegraph – has promoted two of them to leadership roles.
sounds like some Fahrenheit 451 action right there. We dont’ fight the fires, we make them!
