AICHI PREFECTURE (TR) – The office of the Chitachubu Area Fire Department announced on Friday that a firefighter from the region will be disciplined for appearing in adult video (AV) productions, reports Chunichi Shimbun (Feb. 14).

The fireman, stationed at a substation of the Hirata City Fire Department in Higashiura, has been accused of violating local government employee laws by engaging in dual employment, which is prohibited.

In March of 2012, the 25-year-old submitted an application to an AV firm after seeing an advertisement in Nagoya. He then starred in two films shot in Osaka and Tokyo at a rate of 50,000 to 60,000 yen for each production over the next two months.

Last month, the firefighter confided to a superior about his side work. The matter then officially came to light on February 14, when an anonymous letter and DVD showing the fireman performing reached the Hirata City Fire Department.

As to a motive, the fireman said he “had money troubles” stemming from a marriage ceremony and the birth of a child.

Since April of last year, there have been four other scandals involving members of the Chitachubu Area Fire Department, including a hit-and-run accident and the taking of obscene photographs. As a means of countering the incidents, a special scandal-prevention committee was launched by mayor Sumio Sakakibara in January.

Sadao Katayama, the chief of the Hirata City Fire Department, offered an apology about this latest development. “To start anew and immediately have another scandal is to (have the public) lose faith,” said the chief. “It is inexcusable.”
