Folks in the nation's capital don't have to buy a ticket to the circus, because they are already getting a free show with the D.C. fire department's exhibition of mismanagement ("President's D.C. ambulance runs out of gas, with fuel gauge broken," Page 1, Aug. 13). It points straight to the source of the failures: Fire Chief Kenneth B. Ellerbe.
D.C. Council candidate Patrick Mara on Tuesday called on Mayor Vincent C. Gray to replace the city's fire chief, saying Kenneth Ellerbe is "not the best person for the job."
The head of the D.C. firefighters' union says a plan to keep two fully stocked, reserve ambulances ready to be put on the street in case others have mechanical problems is too little, too late.
A quarter of the District's 39 ambulances were unaccounted for on the night a D.C. police officer injured in a hit-and-run accident had to be taken to a hospital by a transport unit from Prince George's County, city officials said Thursday.
Power issues resulted in the evacuation of two Red Line trains Wednesday, making for a frustrating morning commute.
The removal of the District's fire department spokesman and neutering of the agency's Twitter account has left a void in the District's "Twitterverse," but members of the agency's union say they plan to pick up the slack.
