The Los Angeles Stentorians, who represent African-American firefighters in the city, called the incident a “dismissable” offense.
“LA City Stentorians are sick and disgusted by this horrific display of unprofessionalism,” they said in a statement.
The LA Times reports that The Stentorians took further action by urging the city’s mayor, city council and fire commission to respond quickly to the action. LAFD spokeswoman said the department takes the firefighter’s reaction seriously
“No matter how our members react, all city employees must comply with city ordinances – either apply for a waiver, be vaccinated or face dismissal,” a LAFD spokesman told the LA Times.
