After receiving at least three letters with complaints and meeting with the local firefighters association, the Augusta Fire Department wants to set the record straight about claims made against it. Michael Meyers, the department’s public information officer, said the majority of the allegations made by Augusta Professional Firefighters Association Local 3357 President Charlie Coleman in a series of letters since Sept. 21 were not true. An additional letter was sent by the International Association of Fire Fighters to the city stating that the city was attempting to suppress the organization’s voice. Coleman said last week that he met with Augusta Fire Chief Chris James on Oct. 19 but that the meeting didn’t go well. Meyers said Monday the meeting actually went well.
