"I would like to take a minute to address the local web forum posts that so many of you have been discussing regarding Firefighter-Nicole Mittendorff. We at Fairfax Fire and Rescue are aware of the posts and are looking into the matter. I assure you that my department can not and will not tolerate bullying of any kind. At this time, we are respecting the privacy of Firefighter-Paramedic Mittendorff’s family, and providing support to the men and women of the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department who are grieving under these challenging circumstances. We will thoroughly investigate this matter and take any appropriate actions needed. However, right now we ask that we be allowed to grieve the loss of one of our own."

Let's make it happen. Talk is cheap. This problem is endemic and is a poor representation of our county. The Board of Supervisors should be monitoring this carefully. Forget the lawyers and just do it.

In the average workplace people would be fired for this conduct. Time for FFX to catch up.

I agree --- any PERSON guilty of infidelity with a co-worker that causes a HWE for their spouse should be immediately terminated. The "department can not and will not tolerate bullying of any kind" should recognize that "bullying" can come in the form of a PERSON cheating on their spouse with mutual co-workers.
