Brewster and Orleans Fire Departments Participate in “Playing Above the Influence” Event

On Saturday July 18 the Brewster and Orleans Fire Departments participated in the Cape Cod Baseball League and Gosnold on Cape Cod’s “Playing Above the Influence event at Eldredge Park in Orleans.
During the well-attended event Gosnold, who is the leading provider of addiction and mental health services on Cape Cod, presented former Boston Celtics player Chris Herren as the special guest speaker. After completing intensive rehabilitation programs, Herren has been alcohol and drug-free since 2008, and speaks to groups throughout the nation about his battle with drug abuse and how he is overcoming it.
During the program the Brewster Fire Department proudly displayed their oversized American Flag from Ladder 237 and the Orleans Fire Department provided a slip-n-slide for all those willing to cool off from the afternoon heat. Other public safety organizations present included the Orleans, Brewster and Wellfleet police departments and a representative from the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit.
The Brewster Fire Department would like to thank the Whitecaps. Gosnold, and the Cape Cod Baseball League or providing us the opportunity to participate in this great community event!
