I refuse to post these to the front page of Wikipedia any more. But I will post them here. The article I wrote or assisted with is in bold.
Did You Know ... the recent history of the District of Columbia Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department includes a scandal over the hiring of Chief Kenneth B. Ellerbe, a costly battle over uniforms, the imposition of too much overtime, the censorship of the department's Twitter feed, the poor scheduling of firefighters, the poor scheduling of ambulance crews, an attempt to manipulate arson figures so they looked a lot lower, the inability to track vehicles (were they in the shop? had they been purchased? where were they?), fires on ambulances, a scandal over the mismanaging of paramedic staffing (requiring the city to use private ambulance serviced, depicted), retaliation by Ellerbe against department employees, and more?
