Emergency workers in South Florida have warned that the Covid-19 vaccine mandates are creating a serious public safety crisis.
Hundreds of firefighters, paramedics, dispatchers and EMT workers in Orange County, Florida’s fifth-most populous county, say that morale is down due not only to employees within this sector being told that they must get vaccinated, but also because area residents who get injected are falling ill in record numbers.
Calls continue to pour in about fully vaccinated residents falling unwell and dying, which is spreading already troubled emergency responders thin. This is on top of the worker shortages resulting from mandates that are driving the unvaccinated out of their careers.
Jason Wheat, a firefighter and spokesman for about 500 men and women who fight fires and respond to 911 calls, said that constant infighting between the vaccinated and unvaccinated is leaving many emergency workers distracted, stressed out and unable to work as a team.
Teamwork is crucial for emergency crews to save lives, but thanks to President Biden’s vaccines and mandates, emergency teams are no longer teams.
The Epoch Times described how exhaustion, depression, harassment and a “frightening lack of cooperation and teamwork” are how many emergency workers described their lives under the “new normal.”
“Two expressed dismay about three recent suicides among department workers,” the Times reported. “They blamed the stress that has plagued the department since the pandemic began.”
