Capt. Christian Granucci said there were hundreds of firefighters who have retained a lawyer to fight the requirement in a video posted on the Telegram app and then shared on Twitter by journalist Jasmyne Cannick. He added that he would “catch total grief” from the fire department.
“When will this tyranny stop?” Granucci said. “I’ll tell you when it’s going to stop. It’s going to stop right here, right now, and I’m putting my administration and my union on blast.”
The Los Angeles Fire Department said in a statement that it was made aware of the video Monday morning. Officials with the agency said it respects the captain’s right to his opinions.
But LAFD officials said Granucci appeared to be in uniform and on duty in the video. That may have led some to believe he was speaking on behalf of the department, something he is not authorized to do.
The Los Angeles Fire Department’s union said in a statement that it does not support any city policy that makes vaccination a condition of employment.
