The department says Engine 55 was dispatched to the scene, and when they got there Tyre was on the ground in handcuffs leaning against a police car.

MFD says their investigation concluded the EMTs, who were called for a person being pepper sprayed, failed to conduct an adequate patient assessment on Tyre … and after their initial interaction with him, they requested an ambulance, which got there about 15 minutes after EMTs arrived.

All the while, the Fire Department says Lt. Whitaker remained in the fire engine with the driver.

MFD says both EMTs and Lt. Whitaker “violated numerous MFD policies and protocols” and they’ve all been fired.

As you know, Memphis police beat the crap out of Tyre and he complained of shortness of breath while being arrested … he was taken to a hospital where 3 days later, he died. The 5 cops involved in the arrest have been fired and charged with murder.

MFD says the actions and inactions of the EMTs and the fire lieutenant “on the scene that night do not meet the expectations of the Memphis Fire Department.”
