KCFD's HR prolly cooking up a big smelly batch of Critical Race Theory training for whites only.

We need even more discrimination in the KCFD otherwise our fire protection will seriously deteriorate if we have to hire blacks and women rather than qualified candidates.

I think a couple of hot young sluts should be hired at each station. They would improve moral as long as they put out. Added bonus if they can cook and clean.

Didnt we have a black fire captain convicted of selling guns to felons?

James Samuels was the black fire captain who plead guilty to selling guns to felons. At least one of those guns was used to murder someone. Then there was Pleaze Robinson the black KCFD fireman who beat a woman in a road rage.

The KCFD is an incredible waste of money. Diversity will make it even worse.

OCT 2019 -- KC Business Journal

"In addition to the city manager and a number of department leaders, three paramedics, an EMT and a utility supervisor ranked among the top 25 earners."

"Among the city workers who earn overtime, firefighters and fire captains collect the most. An astounding 98% of the city's 911 firefighters and fire captains collect overtime pay.

In fact, Kansas City firefighters collect on average $7,421 in overtime pay, and 16% of employees with "fire" in their position title earn 20% or more of their total gross pay through overtime pay."

Top positions ranked by total gross pay
"With 911 total employees, firefighters and fire captains collectively earn the highest total gross pay of any position with the city. In 2018, firefighters and fire captains earned nearly $49 million in total gross pay."

Here's a quick look at the outliers mentioned among the city's top 25 highest-paid employees:

Paramedic Royce McGuire earned $126,670 in overtime pay, which amounted to 56% of his total gross pay.
EMT Steve Wilson earned $116,271 in overtime pay, or 69% of his total gross pay.
Paramedic Lynette Lindholm earned $115,599 in overtime pay, or 62% of her total gross pay.
Firefighter/paramedic John Morrow earned $108,035 in overtime pay, or 56% of his total gross pay.

Hey, no worry 8:09. All that OT for FD is miniscule compared to just the signing bonus money for those heroes on the Chiefs roster! Maybe Patty and Travis can help.

Someone putting in that much overtime can't be 100% alert on the job.

11:14, someone claiming that much overtime pay probably isn't telling the truth.

BLM has been a boom for black actors. 12% of the population is now 75% of the people in commercials.

The last class for fire fighters had zero blacks enroll. They are afraid of hard work.
