Here’s The Scoop … In The Doghouse …. It’s Better Than Being Kicked Out Of The Firehouse Though…

CHIEF PERKIN’S…NEW HOME?….

We hear that Chief Perkins was on the receiving end of his Deputy Chief”s dressing down over a fire call on Friday …(7/10/09)

Late Friday as a result of the late evening storm which produced an abundance of lightening strikes…Europa Condominium located at 1460 N. Ocean Blvd was struck and the callĀ  went out …..The VFD arrived with Chief Perkins in charge…They foundĀ  the impact of the strike and cleared the call…as a false alarm…leaving the scene and returning back to the station…

It is said that Dep. Chief McIntee was out of town with his wife and son…and upon returning…decided to check out the location of the call… Upon arriving at the Europa he found the power was still off and proceeded to take matters into his own hands….We are told he dropped his family off at his home and made a beeline back to the firehouse…

Then we are told…. he let loose on the Chief in front of the troops and said that there might still be a fire and they needed to return to check the building out…..The Deputy Chief contacted BSO Dispatch and said he was sending 12 back to 1460 N. Ocean …

Dispatch asked if he needed an alarm number and Dep. 12 (McIntee) said they would operate under the original call number….He was then heard telling the VFD members to start at the top floor and work their way down!…

WOW!…If the leaks are correct…isn’t that a clear act of insubordination?….We hear the Chief was humiliated and was still feeling the sting the following day….The real question is will the Chief follow through on some sort of disciplinary action against his number 2?

But, if the Chief does not…we surmise…. being the the doghouse is still better than being kicked out of the firehouse….

Tonight is the VFD monthly business meeting ….and if the rumors are right…McIntee has his sites set on firing a few members that are not towing the McIntee-line!…

BC- Guess the Deputy Chief’s brand new Command car is not the only thing making Jerry see red!…

more to come…
