The New York City Fire Department issued a warning to firefighters for booing the New York Attorney General and cheering for former President Trump at a promotion ceremony.

The department is investigating the incident and advised firefighters not to express political views while on duty.

Firefighters “should understand that BITS is gathering video and identifying members that brought discredit … to the department,” the memo read. “We want the members to come forward. They will come to HQ to be educated [on] why their behavior is unacceptable.”

“When you’re not on duty, feel however you want about politicians,” the memo added. “Vote. Protest. That’s your right. But don’t do it on the job’s time, on other members’ time, or on their families’ time. Do it on your own time.”

The controversy arose during the swearing-in of the first Black female chaplain, leading to disruptions and chants of “Trump.”

“Oh, c’mon, we’re in a house of God. Simmer down,” AG Letitia James said. “Thank you for getting it out of your system.”

The department emphasized professionalism at official events and stated the investigation is not politically motivated.

The investigation was “about professionalism at an official event,” and “has nothing to do with politics,” FDNY spokesman Jim Long said.

“Nobody is hunting anyone down,” Long said. “We’re looking into those who clearly broke department regulations.”
