Why Is Darrin Scott, (Salisbury Deputy Fire Chief) Standing So Close To Fire Without Protection?

This fire happened today and Darrin Scott who holds the title of Deputy Fire Chief is standing in front of the building fire in no fire gear what so ever. 

Deputy Chief Darrin Scott is the 2nd highest ranking fire officer in the department and he is standing very close to the fire in absolutely no fire gear or no protective clothing. 

What he is doing is a direct violation of the SFD SOP's and many people have been written up, lost wages and terminated for doing what he is doing. 

He is supposed to set the standard for every man and woman on the fire ground. Typical violation where the rules don't apply to everyone. Just the ones they want to get rid of.

I knew Darrin when his Sh*t stunk like everyone else and know that he has been getting Rotor-Rooter'd for 20 years and when he began his kissing every A#S that is politically beneficial and being serviced as far back as good ole Norm Conway and leading up to his ultimate regular Jim Boy Ireton and his newest butt buddy with that cute fuzzy hair cut and his title is Mayor which almost is as funny as Darrin being Chief when fat boy has the big one! To you men in the fire service in Salisbury or in the county please don't critique him for unsafe behavior he commits that only involves himself and we may all get a real FD when Darrin spontaneously combust!

Flat out irresponsible. What is something in that shop had exploded..paint cans, gas cans, propane tanks. His radio works farther than that....or cant these paid professionals do the job without him being up their skirt? Maybe he's never had gear to know its required?

Anonymous said...

He's also standing in the middle of fire hose. If anyone of the firemen were to take off - and try to go to fight another area of the fire - he could end up injured. What is he thinking? Surely - this man doesn't possess the skills required to assess a LIVE condition.

Anonymous said...

This is what happens when someone is only focused on assuming command, and doesn't take the extra 2 minutes to put on his gear. Poor example, as well as poor practice.

Anonymous said...

There are NFPA standards that require anyone on the fire scene to be in full turn out gear.

You remember the same NFPA standards that Rick Hoppes was spouting off about the volunteers not meeting their percentages and only responding 50% of the time.

Looks like Rick Hoppes and Darrin Scott pick and choose which NFPA Standards they want to comply with.

Look at all of those paid firemen right up against that building without breathing air from their bottles. How do they know what is burning in that building.

When they all get respiratory problems or cancer from breathing those toxic fumes they are going to want us to pay their medical bills and cry for them.

For those of you sitting back and bashing two individuals for doing a job to protect someone's property is a shame, 1 the Deptuy Chief is about 20 yards from this structure and is assessing the conditions of the fire to make sure his interior crew is making a good knock on the fire as well as making sure exterior crews are completing their task, and for the comment about the deputy cheif tripping over the hose is ridiculous, you can clearly see he is in mid stride in this picture moving away from the hose, and 2 the guy with the ladder sets this ladder and immediately leaves the area, I've never seen a city bash it's fire department more than the city of Salisbury, these guys no matter what is said about them continues to serve this community and surroundings ares with the up most pride. The people on here that dispise the Salisbury Fire Department get a life and join as a volunteer and make a difference and understand why the SFD does what it does

I wonder how long it takes before the SFD pulls that picture from their website. Well it's fingerprints are on this site forever. Thank you Joe.

A millisecond in time that none of you complaining about have no idea what was about to happen next, what happens next is Chief Scott commands a crew to mask up and assist with overhaul and removes him self from the scene, next what happens is that guy to the far right sets his ladder and leaves, you know maybe if you guys took the time to ask question about a situation or a picture about a fire scene you wouldn't just jump to conclusions like you do about everything else, Take the time to get the facts and understand what is going on

This is definitely a good find Joe. This should definitely be pinned at the top for a good day. I am sure if you keep all the recent SFD comments at the top for a good day your comments will skyrocket. It would go up almost as much as the fire trucks self dispatching themselves on calls they are not supposed to be responding to. In real fire departments with a real EOC dispatching center they wouldn't get away with their self dispatching.

What should happen to Darrin Scott for a serious violation of an SOP:

1) Reprimanded
2) Fired
3) Demoted
4) Fired
5) Lost Wages
6) Fired
7) Make him shave that silly mustache
8) Fired
9) Fired

10:18 Sounds like you don't get out much since the only FD you can name are in MD/DC. Some of us have experience from the birthplace of volunteer firefighting and have certs in several states. In 1736 Benjamin Franklin founded the first American volunteer fire company in Philadelphia. You local wannabes are an embarrassment, regardless of whether paid or volunteer, but the volunteers have the benefit of being altruistic and serving their community to the best of their ability.

I worked with Darrin Scott in Real Estate and he was about as bright as a burnt out light bulb. It took him over 5 attempts to finally pass the licensing exam to be able to sell real estate in the state of Maryland. What a DUMMY!

He was ultimately let go because he wasn't doing much except for standing around which is exactly like he is doing in this picture. What a waste and we are all glad that he is no longer at our office. We all laughed at his stupidity. He thought we were laughing with him, but we were definitely laughing at him. Poor Dummy.

Oh really?? LMAO. Good try Bozo, but the bottom line is the fact that he shouldn't have been in the middle of the fire ground or that close to the burn building. His rank doesn't mean Diddly and as a matter of fact, it will really hurt him if an investigation is going to be directly at Darrin Scott. No wonder his Old Lady left him.

Anonymous said...

I'm looking at this picture and thinking about what should be going on. Darrin Scott is wearing a white shirt because he is a fire officer. He is a chief officer and although he was barking orders, he was not in command.

Where Darrin Scott is standing is NOT the Command Post. He should have been at the Command Post, which I know there really wasn't one, the Incident Commander should be reprimanded for that.

Mike Donaway is also a high paid chief officer. He is the Incident Commander and it was his job to reel Dummy Darrin in so Donaway screw up for losing his span of control and should be reprimanded, but he won't be because Mikey is in that little click.

Darrin and Hoppes are quick to write someone up for doing this same infraction. Darrin needs to be written up by the incident commander and if Donaway doesn't write him up, then Donaway needs to be written up as well for not doing his job. There rules and "guidelines" in the Salisbury Fire Department are only apply to volunteers who they are targeting. I also know a few times the "Leadership" Hoppes, targeted some career members for doing less. Fire them all please.

Good try Bozo! It isn't his job to do an "Overview" he isn't the incident commander. As a matter of fact he violated the chain of command several times.

He is not in danger? There is obviously a lot of smoke pouring out of that garage. A quick wind shift which was happening will put him in the middle of the path of the fumes. He has no SCBA on and that close he should have.

He is not in danger? He is standing in the middle of a charged hose line. At those pressures the hoseline could burst causing serious injuries. The couplings could come lose causing that section of hose to whip around without control and strike your fearless leader. Then what have you got to say. This is a very dangerous place to stand.

Very dumb move and Dep. Chief Scott needs to be demoted and disciplined with time off and no pay.

Read this if you think standing in the middle of a charged fire hoseline without protective gear on.

Fire hoses - Daytona Fire and Safety Equipment, Inc.

Fire Hoses
A fire hose is a high-pressure hose that carries water or other fire retardant (such as foam) to a fire to extinguish it.

Outdoors, it attaches either to a fire engine or a fire hydrant. Indoors, it can permanently attach to a building's standpipe or plumbing system.

The usual working pressure of a firehose can vary between 8 and 20 bar (800 and 2,000 kPa; 116 and 290 psi) while its bursting pressure can be up to 83 bar (8,300 kPa; 1,204 psi).

When a hose fails, the explosive force can send housings and couplings blasting through the air at speeds that can be fatal to anyone hit by the debris.

Second, the deputy chief is not making an overview to make sure the scene is close. I was there and I am not stupid.

Third, it's not the guy with out gear's job to set the ladder and leave. The guys with gear have that job. I see absolutely no one with tools in their hands. I firefighter already dressed down grabs the ladder with another firefighter and sets the ladder. Quit making excuses you dumb moron.

The majority of the people making negative comments must have been Hillary voters. Probably saying the same thing about President Trump. Can't stand authority and jealous of the position. Just for curiosity, I asked a Fireman at BWI to give me his thoughts on this. Without being there and not knowing the true nature of the fire he could only say Chief Scott was not in the line of the fire. What that means I have no clue but that being said I'm not a Fireman nor confess to be like the experts commenting here.

What Darrin and Rick Hoppes did with hiring their own relatives is in violation of the employee handbook. They both need to be fired for that.

I've been in 3 fire departments, one very busy DC Metro combination fire dept, one moderately busy, started out volunteer then went to combination fire department, last a very rual volunteer fire department. I clam to be no expert but what I can see here is nothing wrong. I said it in another post 90% off you people have no idea what you're talking about, and if you were to watch how fire scenes are controlled in very large cities your heads would explode. Instead of always criticizing, because we know you have nothing else better to do, why don't you go to your local volunteer fire department and join in whatever capacity that you can do

March 13, 2017 at 8:36 PM

The fact that you have been in 3 fire departments makes my head explode!! WTH?? Did you keep getting kicked out and had to shop around till someone would take you in?

The fact that you rode in fire trucks for 37 years makes my head explode!! First off they are fire engines, not fire trucks. A real firefighter wouldn't brag about riding in fire trucks when in fact they are fire engines. A real firefighter would have become an engineer or an officer and would have settled down in a fire department.

"I've been in 3 fire departments, one very busy DC Metro combination fire dept, one moderately busy, started out volunteer then went to combination fire department, last a very rual volunteer fire department." WTF kind of sentence is that? Your grammar is horrible and you are an embarrassment to the fire service. Are we supposed to be impressed that you've been in 3 fire departments? Obviously no one wanted you. Are we supposed to be impressed that you were in "one very busy DC Metro combination fire department?" You sound like a retard so why don't you just shut up!

You "clam" to be now expert? That speaks volumes!! Move along!

Well...which is it? Was he in command or not? Earlier comments justify his position by claiming he was the "incident commander". You guys can't even get you fake justification lies straight.

March 14, 2017 at 6:57 AM

Isn't that the truth. Mike Donaway was the Incident Commander even though Darrin Scott was breaking the chain of command and barking orders. When there is a fire incident and command has been established, no one talks to central or tells others what to do except the incident commander. Unless you are Darrin Scott of course.

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't most of this flap with the Station #1 volunteers about responding in 4 minutes or less? WTF!! I guess it is Ok for the paid fire crews to take 10 minutes or longer to get to the scene, but if you are a volunteer you have to get there in 4 minutes or less. You talk about double standards.

You know what I find interesting? Almost every single night the paid ambulance crews have to be re-alerted because they sleep through the first call.

Why is it that the paid fire crews can sleep at night and sleep through calls and Rick Hoppes doesn't set response time standards for them?

Rick Hoppes used that to force out the volunteers and convince the mayor and council to hire more paid firemen.

FYI to all the 911 Watch Dogs. There are no laws that dictate what apparatus can respond to calls. In larger departments the dispatchers work off of pre-determined response cards that dictate what equipment should go. Salisbury is one of those with pre-set unit response assignments.In this area most stations receive the dispatch and take what they think they need. In any circumstance the officers answer the calls with the idea of saving lives and property. When it comes to emergency services you cannot pinch pennies.

We all know that Hoppes is using that "acting lieutenant" carrot over Justin Byrd's head to make him do what Hoppes wants. Also Justin Byrd is the President of Station 2's Corporation and that is a conflict of interest.

Darrin Scott has the credentials? On paper only. Every test that Darrin has ever taken that he eventually passed is because John Tull or the "training officer" fudged the documentation. You have a mental illness for claiming those 2 have the credentials to be officers in a paid fire department.

It's all about control. Hoppes can control whoever he wants by making them an officer or an acting officer.

The only reason Lee Smith is the volunteer Deputy Chief is because he does absolutely nothing and let's the paid firemen establish command on all fires. I have no idea why he even responds to calls. Hoppes has that position just where he wants it because the person in that position isn't in power or has any authority.

Lee Smith you are a joke. You are a Pussy and all you are doing is riding around in a free car with free gas. Resign you fat slob! You are hurting the volunteers just for your self gain. Resign you fat slob!

The Trailer Park Twins and the Sparrow do have a problem with spelling. They have had a real problem with reading as well. They were unable to read the promotional exam notice which clearly stated the report time 0800, not 0823. They failed to understand they must pass EMT. Two terms as Acting Lt. and unable to pass EMT translates to Firefighter 1 Back Step. That means Lt. Byrd and DC Smith with their credentials are tasked with commanding those without the ability to follow orders. Don't look down on others because of your inability to follow orders and the chain of command. Page 1 of the officers training handbook. Exactly why your not in a position of authority.

The Trailer Park Twins and the Sparrow do have a problem with spelling. They have had a real problem with reading as well. They were unable to read the promotional exam notice which clearly stated the report time 0800, not 0823. They failed to understand they must pass EMT. Two terms as Acting Lt. and unable to pass EMT translates to Firefighter 1 Back Step. That means Lt. Byrd and DC Smith with their credentials are tasked with commanding those without the ability to follow orders. Don't look down on others because of your inability to follow orders and the chain of command. Page 1 of the officers training handbook. Exactly why your not in a position of authority.

Lt. Byrd and DC Smith will be your supervisors so don't forget that.

See Ladies and Gentlemen, this is how the volunteers of the Salisbury Fire Department are treated by paid firemen.

Instead of referring to these gentlemen by their names they make derogatory comments about them referring to a Trailer Park as if that is a bad thing. I don't know about both of them, but I am pretty confident they live in a much nicer home that you ever will!

Will someone please help this person learn how to spell!

I see that the person posting as 7:52AM has a perfect grasp on the English language. I take it you are offended by being called a "Farmin!" Bwahahahahaha, you stupid Snow Flake Farmin. I guess you need a safe space as well!

And you are full of it. 911 tells them they were not requested and they still go. And there are not "laws" regarding this. So there's nothing wrong with my statement that is what happens here. That's why putting all the fire departments under a county fire commissioner would be better then maybe this BS would stop, especially with the city doing their own thing.

You must be a special kind of stupid person. 911 has their guidelines they dispatch by and all the fire departments around here have guidelines on what is to respond. For an example hydrant vs non hydrant area. There are not "laws" that dictate this. Don't see your name listed either hot shot. You can ask most members of any fire department to verify this. Each fire department has a copy of the county guidelines, you probably didn't know that either And if you are a member of a department better brush up on your training.

There are NO laws, you have no idea what you are talking about. I'm not a member of Salisbury, but even I know they have their own guidelines that they respond under. Smdh. And if you or Salisbury news needs to verify this, Joe has sources that could verify it. I'm not even the original poster and know it. Smdh

Joe you give yourself away when you state "Ladies and Gentlemen" and post under Anon. The courts were right. You do comment on here to yourself.

Joe time after time I comment asking just what your knowledge is of the fire service and you never answer. That's right. You wont post or answer any statement or question that ask a straight forward question. What experience or training do you have to make the statements you make here ? Other than a disgruntled group that give you their side that matches your negative agenda, you have zero business making any statements about the fire department.

12:35, Don't flatter yourself. Whenever I comment I do so using my name. I'm not a pussy like 00% of you here who post under anonymous. I'm man enough to back anything I say. Point your fingers somewhere else little girl, or are you one of those in the closet I love men firefighters who bunks with the boys?

JoeAlbero said...

anonymous 12:42, First of all, I just happen to be moderating comments today. We have a few different people that moderate comments and for the most part I never see 95% of the comments that come in here. So you shouldn't flatter yourself either.

Secondly, do you really think I give a sh!t what you crybaby girls have to say. I mean, look at yourselves. "Brotherhood Above All" my ass!

More like a pack of little girls who really don't give a crap about the very people or ideas you are supposed to believe in.

ALL of us sit back and laugh at the never ending cat fight you guys, (and I use that "guys" term very lightly) fight over.

You are a sorry bunch of drunks who get paid way too much and walk around like you are hero's.

So you see, I am MAN enough to call it like I see it and you pussies hide behind anonymous calling your own leaders all sorts of names. Well, right back at ya.

JoeAlbero said...

On my 12:52 comment, that's 99%.

No, I am not offended by your spelling.
If you can't spell certain words correctly, it means that your whole comment is worthless.

In your opinion Mr. Farmin, the whole comment is worthless. Sounds to me like you are the only one complaining. Must have struck a nerve with you. Do you still need some time in your Safe Space!

I think you hit the nail on the head Joe. I dated a girl briefly who was going through a divorce and she was telling me that her and her husband were involved in Swinging prior to the shake up. She was telling me they got contacted by a couple of paid firemen in Salisbury and Ocean City who were involved in Swinging as well. The only thing was they wanted to hook up with the husband and not her which apparently is uncommon in the Swingers circles. The male firemen wanted to hook up with her male husband. The only thing was I didn't stick around long enough for her to tell me who the paid firemen were. So it is true, there are male firemen in Ocean City and Salisbury who really do like Hoses. Wink, Wink.

I just wish I knew who they were because I would be posting it on here.

Just I've been hearing that Rick Hoppes has been contacting the "fire chief's" in the county stations and begging them to not support giving the Station 1 volunteers the fire district outside city limits. I think that is just wrong and proves it is all about saving paid fire jobs. They are some desperate paid firemen. The get county funding, state funding, city funding, federal funding, and revenue for ambulance billing even after the county already pays them to run the ambulance service. Sounds greedy to me!
