Florida County May Sue Firefighter Over Training Costs

A former Monroe County (FL) firefighter may be facing a lawsuit over $5,247 in training costs, according to a report.

A report from the Keynoter says Anthony Moore resigned May 15 from Monroe County Fire Rescue, seven months after he completed a paramedic training course.

A county attorney will ask commissioners Wednesday if they want to pursue a breach-of-contract lawsuit seeking partial repayment of the training costs.

Under a contract Moore signed last October, he agrees to repay the county for his training if he leaves Monroe County Fire Rescue before working at least two years as a local paramedic, the report said.

Moore reportedly quit to take a position in the West Palm Beach Fire Department.

Located in the south of Florida, Monroe County includes part of the Everglades and the islands of the Florida Keys.
