Aurora (Colorado) Fire Dept. is still seeing red after an Lt. was heard making sexual comments about 2-female FD employees over an AFD radio open-mic.

The episode highlights difficulties that fire departments across the country are facing as social media posts & radio communications are coming under increased scrutiny by news media.

There was a point after 9/11 where firefighters were only considered heroes and off limits for negative news stories, says Chris Ryan, Fire Media Relations & PIO Boot Camp
