Brewster Firefighters Assist with Homebound COVID Vaccination Program

On Thursday April 1 and Friday April 2, Captain/Paramedic Chad Foakes, FF/Paramedic Matt Lavasseur, FF/EMT Alex McHugh, FF/EMT Matt DePippo, and FF/EMT Jordan Shaw assisted the Brewster Health Department with their homebound COVID 19 vaccination event. Assigned to one of several “vaccination teams” the firefighters used their emergency medical skills to monitor those receiving the inoculations for any adverse effects during the required fifteen minute post injection time frame. The firefighters also provided the senior residents with pleasant conversation and goodie bags that included files of life, pill boxes, and emergency planning information.  Brewster Fire/Rescue would like to thank the Brewster Health Department for including us in this important community based event.
