Brumfield was part of the second class of students to graduate from a firefighter trainee program formerly at East High School. The purpose of the program was to introduce interested East students to a potential career in the fire service, and to also increase racial and gender diversity in the RFD’s ranks — a longtime goal of city officials. Somewhere along the line, though, the program stumbled. Those directly involved say bumps in the road are to be expected when you’re trying something new and innovative. But others suspect something more underhanded, and systemic.
