Carol Stream fire battalion chief claims he's facing termination for refusing cover up death due to negligence
CAROL STREAM – A Carol Stream Fire Protection District battalion chief says he is facing termination after refusing to cover up negligence within the district.
Battalion Chief Joseph Gilles said he has been suspended because he spoke out – against the wishes of District Chief Richard Kolomay – about a death caused by a paramedic's failure to follow protocol, according to Gilles' attorney John Botti.
The source of the controversy began Aug. 25, 2012, when a woman at a party choked on a piece of food. A fellow guest came to her assistance, but when a Carol Stream paramedic arrived, Botti said she told the guest to stop.
