Former Sacramento Firefighter Accuses Department Of Hostile Work Environment

Description (Dublin Core)

From the article: Jaymes Butler is one of two African-American captains within the Sacramento Fire Department. He says he’s not surprised by Lewis’s allegations.

“Do I believe it? Yes, I do believe it. Because this is what happens when you don’t recruit a diverse department,” Butler said.

The Sacramento Fire Department is made up of roughly 700 personnel and nearly 70% of them are white men.

“Once the experiences he shared became known to the administration they started an investigation with the city’s Equal Opportunity Employment officers. We strive to have a department the mirrors the community we serve. Knowing that we can do better,” department spokesperson Keith Wade said.
