SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. — The city Fire Department will start baseline drug tests for new hires in the near future and pursue random drug and alcohol testing for all firefighters, a city official said Wednesday.
The institution of drugs tests in the department comes in the wake of last month's arrest on drug charges of a six-year veteran firefighter. Justin R. Moran, 31, of Leonard Road in Saratoga Springs, was charged Feb. 9 with felony crack cocaine possession and endangering the welfare of a child because his two children, ages 3 and 1, were home at the time of his arrest.
