Re the Nov. 21 article Former Miami-Dade fire inspector arrested in fraud scheme: It’s always a shame when a public employee is accused of breaking the trust of the community he’s supposed to serve.
As we wait for more details regarding the investigation of a former civilian fire inspector, who is not a sworn firefighter or affiliated with our union, we want to stress how important it is that all public employees uphold the public’s trust in firefighters and rescue personnel.
Community members know that they can count on us to come to their aid when most needed, without any hesitation. We set high standards for our members and value our important role. We are proud of the work we do and of the community’s support of our role as public servants.
