After leaving the Petaluma Fire Department in June amidst allegations that she was sexually harassed by her male colleagues, firefighter Andrea Waters has retained legal counsel and appears to be gearing up for a lawsuit against the City of Petaluma.

A memo sent to all employees of the Petaluma Fire Department on July 14 by Fire Chief Larry Anderson states that Waters “is contemplating filing a lawsuit” and as such, all employees are required to preserve any communication that mentions her directly or indirectly, including emails and text message, “whether or not Ms. Waters was the author or recipient of the communications and whether or not the communication specifically refers to her by name.”
