The Los Angeles Fire Department is investigating an incident involving a firefighter who allegedly wiped his butt with a noncompliance letter related to the city’s vaccine mandate.

The firefighter reportedly left fecal matter on the document after performing the act, then dropped it on the ground, according to the Stentorians of Los Angeles City, a group representing black firefighters.

“The department is aware of the seriousness of the allegations and took immediate action upon learning of this incident,” LAFD spokeswoman Cheryl Getuiza said. The incident allegedly occurred on Nov. 18, according to Getuiza.

“No matter how our members react, all city employees must abide by the city ordinance — either file for an exemption, get vaccinated, or face termination,” Getuiza continued.

The offending firefighter is on administrative leave and “will face the consequences of any inappropriate acts,” Getuiza said.

The incident occurred at Fire Station 69 in Pacific Palisades and was witnessed by an LAFD captain and a chief officer, according to the Stentorians of Los Angeles City.

“The LA City Stentorians are sickened and disgusted by this horrific display of unprofessionalism,” the group said in a statement. “To date, we have not heard from anyone from the LAFD administration condemning this act of blatant disrespect and harassment.”

The group called on the mayor “to take swift and immediate action to deter any city employee from feeling entitled and not encouraged but empowered to behave in such an embarrassing and threatening manner.”

Los Angeles issued compliance notices to workers as part of the city’s vaccine mandate. Workers were supposed to provide proof of vaccination by Dec. 18, the Los Angeles Times reported. Workers who do not comply are to be taken off duty without pay.
