An interview with attorney Jim Juneau is presented. When asked if fire departments are liable in a court of law, he states that any public official has discretion to exercise his choice in which it is protected from liability. Juneau believes that safety is everyone's responsibility, however, if all firefighters were effectively able to execute their own conduct then there would be no need for supervisory personnel.
