Two San Francisco firefighters assigned to Station 2 in Chinatown that is at the center of an investigation into sexual harassment and sexual misconduct have come forward to publicly discuss the allegations with KTVU.
The firefighters, identified only as Albert and Jack, denied any involvement in either the harassment or misconduct. Members assigned to the station were accused to of urinating on a female firefighter’s bed and spreading feces in the woman’s bathroom.
Among their comments:
- “When we first heard that; it was a unanimous thing where we said we’ll submit to a DNA test, why don’t we get a sample of it and that would rule us all out.”
- “We’re being punished for something we didn’t do, I felt very hurt by it, I felt very betrayed by the department.”
The firefighters allege that the problems began when a chief officer assigned to the station arranged for a female subordinate with whom he was having an affair to be assigned their station.
