NBC Bay Area has learned that San Francisco is investigating complaints of a drunken party at a city fire station that may have left the station’s only on-duty paramedic incapacitated. The probe, which is being conducted by San Francisco’s emergency services agency, focuses on a gathering in September at Station 11 in Noe Valley. The complaint was that the celebration of a firefighter’s transfer got out of hand. At least five firefighters and command staff have been notified that they are under investigation, sources told NBC Bay Area. One thing investigators want to know is whether the station misrepresented its ability to handle life-saving calls when its on-duty paramedic was incapable of fulfilling his advanced life-support function, sources said.
