The DC Fire and EMS Department is one of the most troubled agencies in our area. As we discovered, people were dying as they waited for critical equipment to respond, prompting the fire chief and the union president to throw out statistics and quotes in an effort to blame each other. But no one really knew what was going on inside DC FEMS because the agency had a long history of never responding to FOIA requests. As a result of our one and a half year legal battle and its resulting series “Seeing Through the Smoke: The DC FEMS Investigation,” the DC government created a new FOIA ombudsman and finally filled its empty DC FEMS FOIA Officer position.
