TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! INSIDERS WARN OF CHANGE THAT COULD REQUIRE STRICTER RANDOM DRUG TESTS OF KANSAS CITY FIREFIGHTERS!!!



UPDATED . . . Oy, you people are picky and we split this story into two and cleaned it up a bit thanks to reader complaints. The changes are highlighted. You're welcome.

A lot of people don't know that KCFD doesn't have to endure STRICT regular random drug tests like so many other municipal employees thanks to some rather sweet contract negotiations.

A lot of public works employees who operate heavy machinery are subjected to random drug tests.

Cops are randomly drug tested.

And in Missouri welfare recipients are also drug tested.

Like it or not, powerful bargaining tactics from Kansas City firefighters have taken them MOSTLY out of the drug war.

However . . .

RECENT EVENTS AND LONG STANDING BACKGROUND CHATTER ABOUT KANSAS CITY FIRE HOUSE SHENANIGANS HAVE INSPIRED MORE THAN A FEW POLITICOS TO TALK ABOUT NEW STRICTER REQUIREMENTS WHICH MIGHT SUBJECT KCFD TO MORE STRINGENT REGULAR RANDOM DRUG TESTING!!!



The political reality is that STRICTER drug testing for employees on the public payroll is an easy sell. KCFD operates heavy machinery and works to save lives . . . Ensuring the health of this organization by STRICTER screening for drug abuse is a pubic service and possibly a cost cutting measure against liability and promoting employee health as well.

will the administer the tests @ price chopper? That's the only way to get a good sample.

Random drug tests are already the rule at the KCFD.

There's also talk about firefighters growing wings - and flying to fires! My sources are as good as the ones presented here.

KCFD is only tested "for cause" this is a privilege that no other KC group has and it needs to stop.

I'm confused. I work at North Kansas City Hospital and the Kansas City Missouri firefighters come in on an almost daily basis for drug and alcohol screening at our lab.

I'm confused as to why this article says they don't.

Tony you are such hack. His about actually doing some research before you post this garbage. The fire department employees are all subject to drug testing. From the fire Cheif down to the office people. Everyone. You've never seen a fire truck parked at the concentra on southwest? Shit dude its right by your house. Sleeze ball reporting doesn't lend credibility to your other stories

fore cause drug testing.

In the past two years, I've been random tested 6 times. When I drive a passenger bus years ago, I was also subject to random tests. In four years I was tested once.

If anything, all the random tests, which I passed, caused many lost hours of work to perform and cost the city a fair bit of money. Obviously someone, somewhere, thinks that you save money by spending more of it e.g. more tests.

Fine by me. Bring it. If you want me spending more time in a clinic waiting to pee, I.don't.care.

Is this so they don't go berserk and attack kcmo police officers? Trying to prevent something.

KCFD members are drug tested both "randomly" and "for cause". Whomever gave you this "insider info" has steered you down the wrong path! However, basement dwelling freeloaders should be tested for downs syndrome!

Tony said...

Agree with all of the comments above . . . Thanks reader comments, altered this story a bit and clarified terms within minute of ur bitching.

Thank you TKC Blog community!!!

Local 42 employees have it in their contract that they are not drug tested. Don't give up on this one TKC. They know they are spinning.

Tonys KC-gossip
(cc) Blinded by his zeal for high comments count, Tony posts error filled story on KCFD drug testing policy and also agrees with commenter on possible Down Syndrome afflication; the gang speculates that Tony may be slipping, citing recent cave in to angry jazz singer hubby.

No its random as well.

You want stricter drug testing? You want guys to pee at the start of their shifts? You're an idiot. They're are shit bags in every profession but the amount on the FD are a much smaller percentage then most

Anonymous said...

And the contract is on the local 42 website, so everyone can see it. Do some research

Of all the speculation and rumors that are on your site, to post an out and out lie just to stir shit is wrong. I usually enjoy coming on here and reading some rumors etc. but to post crap about something that is written in black and white I have to say makes me believe your a piece of shit

I am sure tkc doesn't care what you think. you sound like you need to be drug tested! 9:02

FACT CHECK:

FD employees are randomly screened for drugs by UA

FD employees are in their own "selection pool" separate from the rest of city employees which equates to a higher % of FD employees getting screened EVERY DAY, 365 days/yr.

FD positive results, indicating the possible presence of controlled substances or their metabolizes in the sample, are LOWER as a percentage of the workforce than positive screenings from the pool of ALL OTHER EMPLOYEES who are subject to random screenings.

KCFD a bunch of pussies

I have it on good authority that the cum guy works for KCFD and actually enjoys pissing in a bottle.

So be it. Anything to keep him from repeating his stupid ass Shit.

What about testing for Hep C? There's a treatment and cure for it. Not treating it, leads to death, liver transplants, cancer and needless suffering. Not to mention the healthcare costs.

Pussies 10:48 - Ya, until your fat ass has be carried out of burning building in -0 degree weather.

Cut the cushy white shirt jobs and you'll get the needed spending cuts.

The Cum Guy also likes giving DNA samples too.

11:02 shows the same style of thinking that got one of his buddies shot. You do the scare tactics thing and think all should whimper down and yield to you as the almighty firefighter. Well your buddy met a cop who wasn't going to put up with that shit and you saw what happened to him. So stop acting like a bunch of whiney pussies and maybe people will show more respect to you. Stop being drunk and making asses out of yourselves in public and we might show you more respect. Till them fuck you pussy.

Well is some ways drug testing is good and in others a joke.

If it has to do with KCFD I am sure it is a joke.

I work for the drug testing company and my job is to hold the firemen's penis's while they pee into the container. After they pee then I have to obtain a semen sample.
I make $7.25/hour and can drink and eat all that I want. What's not to like about this job?

5:08 guess what, I think what 11:54 says makes one hell of a lot of sense, no tough guy about it, but would appear facts and truth upset you greatly.
