Unless they left it offline for some reason the Reflector does not have anything about the GFR study. Nothing at all is on the website.

They’re the only media outlet that doesn’t mention it. Go figure.

This chief has lost his team, and he's too mistrusted and out-of-touch to get his team back.

The Reflector has a detailed article up online now. Haven’t read it yet but it actually looks pretty thorough.

I hate to Mr. Negative...but I fail to see how this small 'skate ramp' being built on the Pedals & Pistons property is going to work? Alvin doesn't own the property, so how long is the property owner going to allow him to rent the space before he sells for big $$. Props to Alvin for trying to do something, I just don't know how this is all going to turn out.

Report cites leadership, morale concerns at fire department - Daily Reflector

There's also a 358 page report on the city's website, if anyone is bored, I mean interested.

There's a strong suggestion of a generational gap issue happening at GFR.

So let’s talk about this generational thing. Greenville Fire/Rescue was the best of the best for many decades. You couldn’t get hired at the place because nobody was leaving. The only time that there were openings was when somebody retired! Fast forward to 2013 when Eric Griffin was placed in the role of “Interim Chief”. Queue the downward spiral. Attrition. Morale. Pride. Scare tactics and retaliation against any “dissenters” if you will. These all became major issues. People began to see the writing on the wall, hence the loss of 90+ firefighters. Yes, there is a generational gap now. It is a DANGEROUSLY young department. And that is the fault of the leadership. Their actions made OVER HALF of the department leave. There are 161 men and women at GFR. 90+ have left. What do those numbers tell you? I encourage every single person on this board to read the full report. Look at the graphs, read the comments from the surveys and focus groups. It is beyond telling of what those men and women have and still are dealing with. It is time for the city to clean house at GFR. It’s been a long time coming.
