Firefighters had ‘sick rosters’ that planned days off in advance, so others could plan to get overtime

That was the revelation at today's Clark County Commission meeting and I have obtained some examples of the rosters and posted them at right. As you can see, red days, posted a month in advance, are for sick days.

But a trail of emails, also at right, shows that the firefighters at some point decided to take these rosters home so they would not be in full view.

How this is not a conspiracy to be investigated by law enforcement is beyond me.

UPDATE FOR CLARITY: For all the brave firefighters posting below under pseudonyms, I should have been clearer. It's not the red on the days, but the red markings before the names. The emails and requested sick days correspond to the B1-B6 that is before the names. Some of those are in red, which signifies sick/call back shifts.
