Seven firefighters from the Boston Mountain Volunteer Fire Department have been suspended for various reasons, but board members for the department say it was justified. “I was suspended because, in my opinion, I was retaliated against for going above the chiefs head to the board over some disciplinary issues within the fire department,” Josh Smith, one firefighter that was suspended, said. That's just one reason why one of the seven firefighters was suspended from the department that serves about 800 in south Washington County. Suspensions for the other six include HIPAA violations, being loud and using profanity in a meeting, and handling emergency vehicles for personal use.
