Chief: Head Of Baltimore’s Fire Academy Reassigned


BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore’s fire chief says the head of the city’s fire academy has been reassigned.


The move comes a week after officials began an investigation into cheating at the academy. Fire Chief James S. Clack says Chief Lloyd Carter will now head the department’s recruiting efforts, but denied to The Baltimore Sun that the transfer is related to the cheating investigation.


Clack says Paul Moore, an 18-year veteran of the academy, will lead it on an interim basis.


The investigation centers around allegations that an instructor handed students a scenario for a lifesaving practical exam.


Academy classes have been suspended since last week.
