A Seminole County commissioner who sparked controversy about a grocery run firefighters made is ignoring the backlash that blew up after Channel 9's story aired.
Since WFTV's story aired last week, more than 2,000 people have signed a petition asking Commissioner Brenda Carey to apologize.
The controversy started after Carey texted the Station 36 firefighters' superiors about them going to a Winn-Dixie less than a mile from their fire station while they were on the clock.
Tuesday was the first commission meeting since the story broke last week, but Carey again ignored speaking out about the controversy and instead praised the work of all emergency responders, according to Channel 9's Tim Barber.
Steven Mayfield think about this they work 24 hour shifts. If they shope before shift or after shift that takes away family time for them. They were in their response area so I don't see a problem with them getting groceries
Steven Mayfield apparently family time and sleep aren't that important to ya. Firefighters work only (on average) 10 days a month, but that's equal to a month of 60 hour weeks because they run 24 hour shifts. Each house fire is equivalent to running a marathon in energy exertion, and with the current load of medical calls that most departments run, sleeping at the station is almost a thing of the past. Let them go get some grub and don't be an ass.
