Orlando firefighter canned after recording commissioner’s phone call

SHARE


An Orlando firefighter was fired this week over allegations of violating a patient’s privacy rights.

Joshua Granada admitted he used his cell phone to record a medical call involving Commissioner Regina Hill. Only audio was captured in the recording.

In the state of Florida, all parties must give consent to the recording of voice in a telephone conversation. However, the issue appears to have gone beyond a telecommunications matter and is a matter of patient privacy.

A fire union representative told WFTV that Granada has hired a private attorney to file a wrongful termination grievance, of which the union will take part in.

Granada was a member of OFD for nine years and claims he only recorded audio for his protection, as he felt he saw “a scene deteriorating and a patient becoming belligerent toward the crew.”
