Plympton-Wyoming reaches a settlement with one of three fired firefighters

There were protest after three firefighters were dismissed from the Plympton-Wyoming fire service in February.


Plympton-Wyoming has reached a resolution with one of three firefighters dismissed last February.

Jeff Scott, who was the District Chief in Camlachie was dismissed by then chief Steve Clemens along with Lt. Carrie Ann Wilson and Sr. Firefighter Jason Lyon in early February, 2020.

No reasons were given for the dismissal although at the time Clemens told The Independent there had been two separate workplace health and safety investigations.

Scott told The Independent in June he had not been given a reason for the dismissal but he frequently disagreed with the chief and let him know his concerns.

A news release issued by the town this morning says:

The Town of Plympton-Wyoming wants to announce that it has reached a mutually acceptable resolution of all employment-related issues with former District Fire Chief Jeff Scott.

The Town of Plympton-Wyoming would like to thank Mr. Scott for his years of dedicated service to the community.

In addition, the town can confirm that Jeff Scott’s departure from the Fire Department
was not related to the workplace investigation that occurred between December 2019 and January 2020, and that it was not related, in any way, to any allegations of sexual harassment.

Mayor Lonny Napper deferred all questions to the CAO, Carolyn Tripp saying only it was “great to have the situation resolved.” Tripp was not immediately available for comment.

We’ll have more details as they become available.
