Meet Memphis Fire Department Officer Robert Long Wiki | Bio

Robert Long (born in 1988) is a 34-year-old former EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) who served for years at Memphis Fire Department (MFD).

On January 30, 2023, local fire chief Gina Sweat released a statement where she mentioned that Robert and two others, JaMichael Sandridge and Michelle Whitaker, were terminated from their duties. Gina accepted that Long, Sandridge, and Whitaker failed at performing their duties and violated numerous policies and protocols.

This termination of the MFD staff was highly demanded by the protestors because, as first responders, they were expected to assess the situation of the victim, but they failed, and the delay that happened in taking Tyre Nichols to the hospital took his life.

Our sources have also confirmed that Memphis Police Department took action, not against 5 but 7 officers, but for some reason, the names of the other two are being kept secret.

Why did Robert Long Got Fire?

On January 7, 2023, at 8:31 p.m., MFD received an emergency call from the Police, and assistance was asked for Tyre, who was pepper sprayed. Ten minutes later, Long, along with EMT-Advanced Sandridge and Lieutenant Whitaker, reached the scene where Nichols was handcuffed on the ground. You can see him in the bodycam footage, which Police released later.

Sadly the emergency squad failed to assess Tyre’s situation and 5 minutes later requested an ambulance which reached at 8:55 p.m. At the hospital, the young father spent 3 days; doctors tried their best to save him, but his condition kept deteriorating with time, and he passed away On January 10.

Had Tyre received the appropriate care, he might not have lost his life. The incapability of Robert and his partners not only tarnished the image of the entire department but also took an innocent, which is why they do not deserve to serve at such a respected job.

Who is Robert Long’s Wife?

There is currently a lot of confusion about Robert’s marital status as he is not present on any social media handle.

Sources say that he deleted all of his Instagram and Facebook accounts as soon as his name got involved in the case of Tyre Nichols’s death.

Some platforms claim that he has been married for a long time, but we are currently considering him as an unmarried person because of the absence of any solid proof.
