CLEVELAND, Tenn. (AP) - Three Bradley County Fire-Rescue officials are accusing their chief of fraudulently obtaining certifications and credentials.

The Cleveland Daily Banner reports (https://bit.ly/1bNJnS7) the allegations came in an April 18 letter to the Firefighting Standards and Education Committee in Nashville. It was signed by a battalion commander and names another battalion commander and a training captain as willing to help with the investigation.

The letter claims none of the training staff have “signed off on or witnessed” Chief Troy Maney completing any practical training for his certifications. It also says Maney could not have taken an April 7 test in LaVergne because he was in Bradley County that day.

Maney told the paper he did take the test, but in Bradley County. He said he can verify every certification he has.
