New York City just lost one-third of its firefighters due to Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccine” mandates, and now the Big Apple is desperately searching for “fully vaccinated” volunteer firefighters to take their place.
Some 26 firehouses across the city have closed due to this mass walkout, leaving some areas prone to blazing infernos since there is nobody left to fight them.
Some 72 percent of Fire Department of New York (FDNY) workers agreed to get jabbed prior to the deadline. However, the other 22 percent still represents about 4,000 employees who were either terminated or forced to resign.
“Good morning all,” reads an email message that was sent out by the city to about 350 potential volunteer firefighters.
“We need to start identifying members of the service who are active volunteer firemen in both Long Island and Upstate counties in anticipation of the impending shortage for the FDNY due to COVID-19 vaccine mandates.”
The goal is to have “qualified members on standby to backfill firehouses if necessary,” the email went on to read, petitioning its recipients to consider filling the void.
“Please get back to me as soon as possible with rank, years of fire service and training qualifications.”
The disastrous impact of de Blasio’s jab mandates is already being seen after a seven-year-old boy named Robert Resto died in a fire that engulfed their home around 1:30am on Saturday morning.
Reports indicate that Resto’s grandmother was seriously hurt, but that Resto himself was burned alive. de Blasio now has at least one child’s blood on his hands for refusing to respect health freedom.
The Uniformed Firefighters Association (UFA) issued a statement explaining that numerous fire stations, including six in Manhattan, nine in Brooklyn, three in Queens, four in the Bronx and four in Staten Island, had to close “due to no manpower.”
FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro also issued a statement warning that these closures could be catastrophic because they “endanger the lives” of the city’s residents.
An FDNY spokesman claims that Resto’s death was not caused by a lack of response time, however, firefighters just the day before reportedly called in sick in order to avoid being forced into unpaid leave for not being “vaccinated.”
“Is there a sickout? Not to my knowledge, no,” said Andrew Ansbro of the UFA.
Numerous others inside the same building as Resto reportedly got injured by the blaze. They were all taken to New York Presbyterian-Columbia Hospital.
As of Friday, all other municipal workers in NYC have been ordered to procure proof of at least one injection or else be forced into unpaid leave.
“Even after a surge in vaccines before the mandate’s deadline on Friday 10,951 firefighters; about 36,000 cops; and 10,000 emergency responders – around 4,300 of whom are employed by the fire department – have yet to get jabbed,” reported the DailyMail Online.
Nigro expressed further frustrations about the “excessive sick leave,” calling it “unacceptable.” He did not, however, state that de Blasio’s mandates are the thing that is unacceptable in this whole scenario.
Out on the streets, meanwhile, NYPD and FDNY union members were seen holding up placards of protest that said things like: “FDNY against tyranny (and) if we lose medical choice we lose all freedom.”
