Union: 7 fire department workers face discipline after probe into firefighter, paramedic sex

The Philadelphia firefighters union says seven fire department employees are facing discipline in an investigation of sex between firefighters and a female paramedic.

The union said Friday that four of those employees are alleged to have had sex with the paramedic, including one inside a firehouse. It says the three others are accused of sexual harassment tied to alleged inappropriate behavior at work.

The union says those recommended for discipline by a city oversight agency include two battalion chiefs, two firefighters, a captain and a lieutenant.

The agency is not commenting.

The union says it has only seen a redacted version of the investigative report and is asking for a complete version.

But union officials say the sex that occurred was consensual, and are disputing the accusation that sex took place in a firehouse.
