D.C. Council member to review EMS overtime

By Washington Post editors

The District’s Fire and Emergency Medical Services has spent $5,188,642 in overtime this fiscal year, and much of the money has been going to a handful of firefighters and paramedics, the D.C. Wire reports.

Several of the firefighters and paramedics are making more in overtime than their base salaries.

D.C. Council member Phil Mendelson (D-At Large), chairman of the Committee on Public Safety and the Judiciary, has requested records for the past three years to review overtime.
