San Diego Fire Department Revises Policy

The San Diego Fire-Rescue Department will no longer require on-duty crews to drive parade routes for gay-pride events, but instead will rely solely on firefighters who volunteer for it. This decision was made after four firefighters filed complaints with state authorities Aug. 1, seeking the right to press sexual-harassment claims against the city’s fire department. The men were ordered by their openly lesbian battalion chief, Tracy Jarman, to participate in a parade on July 21, and were taunted with sexually explicit comments and gestures along the route.
