Local Fox 11 News story about three LAFD Firefighters who work at Fire Station 9 in Skid Row - the busiest fire station in America. These firefighters, along with hundreds of other UFLAC members, face possible termination because of the vaccine mandate. The loss of any firefighters and paramedics will cripple what is already the most understaffed big city fire department in America. #IAFF #UFLAC

I can't blame them I know several people who had bad reactions to these vaccines some very serious. I had the vaccine as my oncologists (yes I have 2) highly recommended it I was fortunate not have much of reaction. I also know a few people who have had 3 doses & have no antibodies what so ever due to the treatment they are in

Ya I heard OCFA is hiring, no vax 💉 requirement….

I can only speak for myself and want you to know I was an antivacer for a long time. I am a firefighter in Nor Cal and have been for over 40 years. All was good until two engine companies came down with the Covid, myself included. One of our FF died as a result of the virus and I became a long hauler w symptoms lasting 8 weeks. Today we mourn our brother FF. I am fully recovered now and back to running calls. I have also gotten my first jab and look forward to my second. I don’t condemn you but urge you to get the jab, stay healthy, and do what you truly love, Firefighting. I’m glad you have recovered from your horrific accident.

Hold the line!

You are no longer willing to serve anyone but yourself, get the shot or go work somewhere like Home Depot. That job doesn’t require an oath.

Ignorance is not blessed 🥲

UFLAC President Freddy Escobar appears on NBC4 News Conference with Conan Nolan to discuss the city’s vaccine mandate. In what is already the most understaffed big city fire department in the country, the LAFD cannot afford to lose any firefighters to suspension or termination because of this mandate.

Not one Chief!!!

UFLAC firefighters gathered to ask Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and the City Council to continue to work with us in good faith to find a compromise that will prevent the possible termination of LAFD Firefighters due to the vaccine mandate.

Time after time - and especially over the last 20 months of this pandemic, our firefighters have stood strong with the City and now we’re asking the City to stand with us. The LAFD is already severely understaffed and cannot afford to see any cuts that will have severe consequences on our ability to serve the people of Los Angeles. #IAFF #UFLAC

First responders need to walk off the job. Let people call Fauci when they need a COP or fire fighter. Hell the vaccine will protect you from everything. At least that’s what Biden and Fauci say….and there are those that actually believe that. I lived in California for almost 40 years. I finally had enough of California stupidity and park my crap and left 4 years ago. Never been happier.

This government is taking over freedom of rights

You got what you voted for, live with your consequences !! No sympathy here, this was self induced on your part ! The IAFF supported Brandon, and now you’re mad.

UNBELIEVABLE ! WHY WOULD PUBLIC EMPLOYEES SWORN TO SERVE THE WELL BEING OF THEIR CONSTITUENTS CAN NOT EMBRACE SIMPLE HEALTH PROTOCOLS TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC FROM PANDEMIC INFECTIONS ! ITS COMMON KNOWLEDGE THAT VACCINATIONS FOR KIDS IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE REQUIRED BEFORE ENROLLMENT . WHY SOME IN PUBLIC SERVICE EXPECTED TO SERVE AND PROTECT THE PUBLIC CAN NOT FOLLOW IT ?

Get vaccinated, problem solved!

Well if you are vaccinated why are you so worried about the unvaccinated if the vaccine works

WHERE IS 'the Scarlet Pimpernel' GARCETTI? Have not seen or heard from him in months! I heard that he went to INDIA as an 'Ambassador' ( What?!!). I hope he does better at that than his job of LA Mayor! BTW, Eric, we have homeless still here on our streets. We need one of your fine, inspiring speeches right now. You know, the ones you give and then DO NOTHING!

You guys should get vaccinated you should show the people what the right thing to do is

Shut up and get the shot or find other work.

That sad don't take there bait,people is pass away, because they were vaccinated to

Please get vaccines is for your own good and your family you guys need to gives some good example

Feel free to resign your jobs, good opportunity for the city to hire intelligent fire fighters.

The vaccine doesn't even work! People can still get C19 People got suckered in taking the jab, Bill Gates said the other day that he wasn't happy with the way the vaccine is working and is going to come out with a new vaccine. The vaccine has already killed over 17 thousand people but the fake deep state media isn't reporting it! Fake news is the people's enemy!!

This Workes should not lost their's Jobs, it not fear

If I don't have my kids vaccinated I can't enroll my kids in the school, who is complaining. Get vaccinated or look a job in the private sector..

I think you're all should get vaccinated and show the public

elections have consequences

Everyone should be vaccinated. It is good for everyone.

Getting vaccinated would solve it

You voted for the piece of s*** now live with it

Vaccine that doesn't protect, why is everyone forced to be vaccinated? who is the real beneficiary of this mandate?

99% of California's firemen and cops voted for 'Biden' and Newsom, because their democrates, now we see them getting screwed over and complaining over nothing more than their own stupidity

Support your firefighters. Vote out Newscum and the evil dictators who are doing this.

You're big mistake was supporting Garshitty in the first place !

On International Firefighters Day we thank all the Firefighters around the world who have dedicated their lives to helping others.  #LAFD
Every firefighter takes an oath to save lives and be there for our communities … helping people on their worst day.  While this service is what firefighters are called to do, the accumulation of all those “worst days” takes its toll on even the strongest of us. 

Answering the call of duty took on a new meaning this past year. Firefighters were on the front lines addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, even as they stood up to an epic wildfire season. These pressures add to the already overwhelming stress firefighters face every day on the job.

Firefighter behavioral health remains the biggest health and safety challenge facing our profession. Our members continue to die at their own hand in greater numbers than in traumatic line-of-duty deaths. We can’t put mental health on the backburner, and we can’t succumb to the stigma that causes so many to suffer in silence.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and once again the California Fire Service Behavioral Health Task Force is urging all fire departments to unite for a Behavioral Health and Suicide Awareness Stand Down.  

From May 17th through the 21st, California Professional Firefighters, California Fire Chiefs Association, Cal-OES and the California Firefighter Joint Apprenticeship Committee urge all agencies to set aside time to conduct exercises and initiate a conversation on mental wellness.

The Behavioral Health Task Force will be providing both print and digital materials in the coming weeks to help you get the conversation started. Preventing suicide in the fire service starts with each and every one of us checking in on our own, having the uncomfortable conversations and opening the door to breaking the stigma that speaking up is a weakness.

We must unite as a fire service to address this challenge – the lives and health of our firefighters depends on it. May 17th through the 21st, let’s work together to bring the darkness to light. Firefighter specific resources are always available at healingourown.org. #healingourown

CONFLICT MANAGEMENT WEBINAR TONIGHT
Tuesday, March 23rd 7:00-8:00 PM

Who hasn’t found themselves experiencing conflict from time to time, whether at home or at work? Take a moment and think back to the last conflict or two that you have been involved with… Was it with your spouse or significant other? Was it with your child or teenager? Or was it at work with your boss or a co-worker? As you know from your own experiences, conflict can be a very uncomfortable and challenging thing to go through.

Conflict Management is “the process of limiting or eliminating negative aspects of conflict while creating solutions to increase positive outcomes.”

United Firefighters of Los Angeles City, Local 112 and the Los Angeles Fire Department invite you and/or your significant other to join us for a webinar designed to help improve your understanding and increase your ability to navigate conflict in both your personal and professional life.

We will have a panel presentation led by subject matter expert Anita Avedian, MFT, along with Peer Support Team members Chief Nikki Brodowy and Captain Charles Boswell, EAP Director Nancy Mraz, and Director of Behavioral Health Dr. Steve Froehlich.

The Webinar will go live TONIGHT, March 23rd from 7:00-8:00 PM.

Please go to www.uflac.org to Register for the Webinar. If you have any questions, feel free to contact UFLAC Center for Health and Wellness Coordinator Maria Rendon by e-mail at mrendon@uflac.org or phone (747) 200-6266. We look forward to connecting with you on March 23rd!

Thank you,

UFLAC HEALTH AND WELLNESS TEAM
