CALGARY — The Calgary Firefighters Association says it is concerned that groups protesting public health measures have referenced having the support of firefighters and first responders.

Earlier this week, a group held a protest outside of Calgary’s Municipal Building, opposing the City mandating vaccines for all City employees.

In a series of tweets, the Association says it does not in any way endorse these groups or affiliate with them.

“Vaccinations are a vital part of keeping our members, our families and the public safe. 85% of our members are vaccinated and we will continue to advocate for vaccinations.”
