“Aren’t you going to do a VIP report?”… Call the paramedics after work and rebuke


Paramedics who worked overtime and transported fall patients to the hospital were called back to the fire station three hours after work and were reprimanded. It turned out that the reason was that Kim Hye-kyung, wife of Democratic Party presidential candidate Lee Jae-myung, was transferred and did not report the VIP.

The time when the report that Kim Hye-kyung, wife of candidate Lee Jae-myung, who was at home, was injured four days (9th), was around 1 am.

Three 119 paramedics from the Gyeonggi Bundang Fire Station arrived at the scene in 10 minutes and moved Kim to a nearby hospital.

The claim that the crew had to bow their heads after being called back to the fire station after leaving work at 9 in the morning after finishing the night shift was raised on an anonymous bulletin board.

It was the content that I did not understand that I was investigated like a criminal because I did my duty as a firefighter but did not report.

As the controversy broke out, the Gyeonggi-do Fire Department began to investigate the facts against officials from the Bundang Fire Station.

According to the headquarters investigation, the Bundang Fire Station command team called in three firefighters around noon, after the ‘Fire Fire Day’ event was over.

It had only been 3 hours since I left work after working the night shift.

It was found that the reprimand lasted about 30 minutes.

Headquarters explained that there was no obligation to report VIP-related trends to higher-level organizations, so the fire department was not held accountable.

Candidate Jae-myung Lee also took a position not to rebuke the crew, saying that he would not have recognized him because he was wearing attire at the time and did not reveal the identity of the couple until the end.

The Gyeonggi-do Fire Department decided to take precautionary measures to the Bundang Fire Station command.
