The chief of the San Francisco Fire Department announced Friday she's considering a plan requiring all firefighters to sign a code of conduct policy every year and attend harassment training.
Only firefighters in supervisory roles are currently required to do this.
Chief Joanne Hayes-White’s announcement is a response to allegations that a female firefighter was harassed at one of the department's stations.
“Obviously very poor judgment was exercised, and we’re going to get to the bottom of it,” Hayes-White said. “And we’ll change it.”
The woman alleged that her male co-workers at a Chinatown fire station urinated on her bed and verbally abused her, according to media reports.
