Brewster Firefighters Train on Beach Related Emergency Medical Incidents

On Monday June 20 members of the Brewster Fire Department under the direction of EMS Coordinator Joseph Cox conducted a hands-on scenario based training session involving responses to emergency medical emergencies on Town beaches and the Brewster Flats. Using training mannequins as patients members trained on a variety of simulated medical scenarios all requiring the assessment, packaging, and transportation of patients from the beach using the departments all-terrain vehicle.

This training session provided staff with an excellent review of the strategies and tactics required to be implemented during these incidents prior to the busy summer season when the potential for an event of this type is significantly increased.
