Investigation: Firefighters drove fire trucks after DUI arrests

SEATTLE — The Seattle Fire Department says it's reviewing its policies after a Dori Monson Show investigation and follow-up by KIRO TV determined members of the staff were driving department vehicles, despite the fact that DUI convictions required they blow into an ignition interlock device on their personal vehicles.

The Dori Monson Show first covered this story back in May when a listener informed Dori of a firefighter who was required to drive his own car with an ignition interlock device, but was allowed to drive fire trucks without one.

Since the initial Dori Monson Show investigation, KIRO 7 has learned that there are actually four members of staff at the Seattle Fire Department that have ignition interlock devices on their personal vehicles.
