Winnipeg fire department investigates report of retirement party at fire station

By | April 27, 2020

The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service is investigating allegations that some of its employees broke COVID-19 protocols last weekend for a retirement party at a fire station.

WFPS members allegedly went to Station 1 “to pay respects to a retiring firefighter on his last shift,” a city spokesperson said.

This would break the organization’s physical distancing rules, which recommend staying spaced out while at fires and in stations, the spokesperson said.

“The health and safety of all service members and the public is the top priority of WFPS,” the spokesperson said.

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