Sadly, this is all too common

While not true in all cases, volunteer fire departments tend to attract bullies, who then take over the top ranks and build their own personal empires of control. I believe that this is largely a result of the fact that they aren't paid, or paid very little for what they do as volunteers, so there is little or no questioning or oversight of how they run the organization. There is a lot of this type of thing going on that never gets reported because it will be swept under the rug and end badly for the victim of the abuse. Glad to see that it was dealt with swiftly in this case.
