L.A Firefighter who dropped pants to wipe buttocks with vaccine mandate letter under investigation. After receiving a hand-delivered letter to comply with the requirement, the Los Angeles Fire Department is investigating a firefighter’s claimed unconventional manner of opposing the city’s vaccination mandate.
According to the Stentorians of Los Angeles City, an organization representing African American firefighters, the LAFD member replied to receiving the non-compliance notice by lowering his pants and cleaning his buttocks with the letter, leaving feces on the paper before dumping it to the ground.
The alleged event occurred on November 18. According to a fire department official, the employee “responded improperly.” “The department is aware of the seriousness of the claims and took swift action upon learning of this occurrence,” said Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Cheryl Getuiza, adding that the individual “will face the repercussions of any inappropriate behavior.”
Getuiza went on to say that the employee has been placed on paid administrative leave. “Regardless of how our members respond, all city employees must comply with the city rules and petition for an exemption, be vaccinated, or risk being fired,” Getuiza added.
The Los Angeles City Council adopted a plan in October to put out the deadline for city workers to acquire COVID-19 vaccines to December 18. The deadline was set for October 20. Unvaccinated holdouts on the other hand, have had $65 taken from their paychecks twice a week to cover the expense of COVID-19 testing as a result of the prolongation.
City employees who have not requested an exemption or submitted proof of vaccination must “provide proof of complete compliance” by December 18, according to the new plan and failing to do so would result in “necessary and urgent corrective action.”
In a statement released last month, Democratic Mayor Eric Garcetti stated “employees must be vaccinated by December 18 and we are putting in place a thorough testing regimen in the meantime.” “Let me be clear: any employee who refuses to be vaccinated by this deadline can expect to be fired,” he added.
