Officials: 2 Georgia firefighters who cheated in class fired

By The Associated Press

FORSYTH, Ga. (AP) — Two firefighters in Georgia were fired after they were caught cheating in a fire instructor training class, authorities said.

The Monroe County Emergency Services announced the terminations in a Facebook post on Wednesday, two days after instructors from the Georgia Public Safety Training Center told the department the firefighters had cheated in the class.

“Whether on an emergency scene or training in the classroom, the trust of the public is imperative and of the utmost importance to us,” Monroe County Emergency Services Spokesman Capt. Shane Cook said.

Officials said the names of the terminated firefighters will not be released.
