At present at our state’s EMS Advisory Board assembly (held by way of web) they’d a second of silence for these in EMS who’ve handed not too long ago as they do each month. One of many deaths was an assistant hearth chief and former state trooper who was one of many first responders at Sandy Hook. He died of COVID-19 at age 50. Different deaths included a husband and spouse EMS workforce who each died of COVID-19 inside weeks of one another. An outdated accomplice of mine is within the hospital with COVID-19. One other outdated accomplice of mine has been out for over a 12 months and can doubtless by no means return to work due to COVID-19.
I’m certain all of you who work in EMS, and even those that don’t know of comparable circumstances.
Put on your PPE when you find yourself on responsibility and put on your masks if you exit. Get vaccinated. We’ve to guard ourselves, our households, our companions, our fellow responders and the individuals we serve.
