Ohio chief suspended over untested air bottles

Allowed firefighters to use bottles despite being aware that they were overdue for inspection

By Randy Ludlow
Columbus Dispatch

CHILLICOTHE, Ohio — Rather than retire or resign, Chillicothe's fire chief will appeal his suspension for allegedly allowing firefighters to battle blazes while using air bottles that had not been regularly tested.

Mayor Jack Everson suspended Fire Chief Bruce Vaughan with pay on Thursday, giving him until yesterday to leave his job or appeal his suspension -- and potential firing -- to the city's civil service commission.
