What kind of message does this send to other employees of Oak Island? Go drive and get caught but don't worry about your job. In any other setting and municipality the Fire Chief would be fired after being found guilty. 2 weeks suspension is nothing but a slap on the hand for committing a serious crime. Time for the City Manager to step up to the plate and take one for the team.
Time for the Chief to step aside because his credibility is gone. His statement "screwed up" is not an excuse. ANY professional member of a municipality's management team should be aware that they represent their town 24/7 regardless. House, maybe you need fall on your own sword. I feel sorry for the staff, I would be scared on fire scenes not knowing whether the Chief had been drinking or not.
