SWITZERLAND CO., IN (FOX19) -

One day after a FOX19 investigation aired into allegations of faked fire and medical certifications in Switzerland County, the Indiana Department of Homeland Security started making calls to the people we interviewed.
 
Last week, we aired a two part investigation into a former assistant fire chief’s claims that an EMT course he took was fabricated. The former fire commander told FOX19 he was asked to sign rosters days after classes were held—classes he said were held while he was working plant shutdowns in other parts of the state.

We also showed you CPR cards issued to some people in the county who tell us they never attended the classes for. Those cards show the instructor was Chris See, who works as the Switzerland County Emergency Management Director and the fire chief of the Jeff Craig Volunteer Fire Department.
 
Now, we’ve uncovered new allegations of faked fire training records from two former members of the Jeff Craig Fire Department. One tells us he was handed the answers for his mandatory fire training certification exam, another said she was given answers on a Hazardous Materials Awareness training certification.

We have evidence of the state investigation and details on where the Indiana Department of Homeland Security investigator’s been, and who he’s interviewed.

Our two-part investigation airs Sunday night at 10 on FOX19 NOW.
