Fox 5 News reporter Paul Wagner has been awarded the first place IAFF Media Award for "Best News Story, Series or Feature" by the Fire Fighters. Wagner -- a SAG-AFTRA member -- won for his “Fire Fighters Union Claims Fire Chief’s Numbers on Reserve Fleet Are False” report, and Local 36 President Ed Smith presented the award at a recent membership meeting. “We are grateful to Mr. Wagner for his vigilance and attention given to this matter,” said Local 36. “It proved a point of contention long held by Local 36 and its members, that the reserve fleet was not in the condition that the previous administration was presenting to the City Council and the citizens we are charged with protecting.” Click here to see the Fox 5 report.
