Chief looking into fire recruit violations

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Guam Fire Department Acting Fire Chief Mike Aguon says he is looking into allegations that a handful of applicants were given the test for the Fire Recruit Exam prior to taking it. The allegations also accused several firefighters of training the potential recruits prior to any official selection.

There are more than 800 applicants, and GFD currently only has 30 positions open.  Since the allegations surfaced, Chief Aguon says he gave specific instructions to all his fire fighters not to help the applicants prepare for any recruit testing. "I did issue an order last week regarding that and the order was to not have anybody who is candidate seek assistance in the fire stations," he told KUAM News.

Department of Administration acting human resources administrator Rose Cruz said the allegations are unfounded. Public safety oversight chair Senator Adolpho Palacios meanwhile say he will send a formal request to the Attorney General's Office to look into the allegations.
