WINNIPEG — The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) is investigating allegations that physical distancing rules were broken at a fire station over the weekend.

A statement from the city said a probe is underway.

“The WFPS is currently investigating a report indicating members of the service hosted colleagues from other stations to Station 1 over the weekend, and in doing so, failed to follow social distancing policies,” the statement reads. “The allegations suggest members attended the station to pay respects to a retiring firefighter on his last shift.”

The statement also said the health and safety of all service members and the public is the top priority of WFPS.

“The WFPS takes these allegations seriously and if proven, appropriate disciplinary actions will be taken.”

This is a developing story. More details to come.
