Wouldn’t want an asymptomatic and unvaccinated firefighter come help my newborn if there was an issue. Good job!

So many people waiting to take that good paying job. Same with cops. An investigator told me he’s never seen so many applying to be cops.

Seemingly impressive headline, but the flip side is that 97% of firefighters had no difficulty complying with a vaccine mandate that protects not only their own lives but those of the people they serve.

This is sad. We need firefighters! There has to be something that can be worked out…some exception that can be made. The vaccine doesn’t prevent spread, it only mitigates severe illness. If they wear masks, let these guys work! Sheesh

Good. I don’t want my parents to be exposed to unvaccinated first responders. It’s irresponsible.

Goodbye. Your public job is not to endanger the public.

Don't let your house catch on fire, get into a car accident, choke on food, have a medical emergency, have your cat stuck in a tree... Sucks to be in LA.

They were able to work for the last two years without the shot and were hero's, now they get fired because the city decides to make some ridiculous mandate. What a backwards world we live in.

This is not good as you can not force someone to inject a substance into their body. It’s not right and I got the vaccine but it was my choice.

Same village idiots commenting that it is a good thing are the same ignorant fools that were screaming to defund the police.... How'd that work out?

If/​when these mandates are found unconstitutional and , God forbid, anyone dies in a fire or loses their home, SUE @LAFD , @LosAngelesCount , and any other institution or official that threatened termination over a forced and irreversible medical procedure. 💸

Now make it a prerequisite to being hired. That way you won’t have this issue any more.

Okay. Now hire some people who are not part of the Old Boy’s Club. These guys have had the LAFD tied up forever, mostly hiring people who look like themselves. Good. Bye fellas.

It’s very important to be vaccinated while fighting wildfires. Trees can get covid.

These people that support this and are happy to people get fired because of these idiotic mandates are just terrible humans. I hope these hero’s find work in other places that don’t have these stupid mandates.

I don’t feel bad for them my job made me do it. Comply or look for work that doesn’t require it there are many behind you that will be vaccinated and take your job.

113 is a lot.

Make sure you have an extra fire extinguisher handy just in case.

I thought that we were constantly at risk for wildfires in LA and CA. So, what you're saying is we are not?

A lot of people on the waitlist to become a firefighter. Hopefully it’s a starting point for them to get their foot in.

Willing to bet they have at least two times that many people on their employment list … and they’d all be willing to get vaccinated for the job.
