New York firefighters boss warns vaccine mandates will kill residents

The head of New York City’s firefighters union has warned that Mayor Bill De Blasio’s vaccine mandate will result in residents losing their lives.

In an appearance on Fox News Radio, FDNY Firefighter Association President Andrew Ansbro declared that “The response times are going to go through the roof. We’re just not going to be able to get to the emergencies in time.”

“Fires are going to burn longer. Heart attack victims are going to be laying on the floor longer,” Ansbro warned, adding “People in stuck elevators are going to be stuck there for hours if not days.” reports: Ansbro made the prediction that 30 to 40 percent of firehouses in New York City will be closed down if the mandate remains, with up to 45 percent of the workforce remaining unvaccinated.

“On Friday, when they’re tallying the numbers of who complied and who didn’t, they’re going to be faced with a stark reality that they’re going to have to close firehouses down,” Ansbro explained.

“The mayor is going to be faced with either sending us home or sticking to his guns,” Ansbro continued, adding “And his guns are going to get New York City residents killed.”

“When this city goes into utter chaos on Nov. 1, be ready to pick up the pieces that the mayor causes,” the fire chief further warned.


During a press conference Wednesday, Ansbro also said “I have told my members that if they choose to remain unvaccinated, they must still report for duty.”

He also stated that firefighters in the city feel “insulted” by the mandate and the probability that they will be prevented from working.

“If they are told they cannot work, it will be the department and city of New York that sends them home. And it will be the department and the city of New York that has failed to protect the citizens of New York,” Ansbro said.


  1. They closed all of the suburban fire stations down here 20 years ago anyway saying they were in necessary and centralised the fire department to the centre of the city Miles away from all the suburbs. They don’t care.

  2. This is what our enemy wants. They want our nation to be unable to function. It’s not stupidity. It’s intentional.
    One way you will know this is true is when it turns out they have got responses already planned. Any response that
    our people make to their tyranny, they will have something up their sleeve to override it, maybe not immediately, but
    sooner or later. They don’t have to worry about the fact that a lot of people don’t agree with them. They have more
    than enough followers who do agree with them to make their plan work. The rest of us they’ll just get rid of. That’s their plan.

    • A well regulated militia being necessary for the security of a free state the right to keep and bare arms shall not be infringed

  3. We all know the whole goal is to put the population at peril. The federal reserve bank needs chaos to cover their crooked asses, when the dollar collapses. They need the bottom feeders to be distracted and worried about other things than what the Federal Reserve Bank has done to this country.
    We are being attacked, there is war being waged on us, yet no one knows it, nor do they know who the enemy is. It is chemical, biological and psychological warfare. No tanks or bombs needed. Very clever indeed. They have half of us begging for our deadly poison to be injected and holding their own kids in front of them begging to poke their children. Quite unbelievable. This is war. the infrastructure stays intact for them after we are all dead.
