That's a INCREDIBLE Fire Company ...Thank You for your Service...

Sounds like you guys had a very busy year keep up the great work I hope the 500 firefighters are doing well at so I feel bad when I see firefighters EMTs and police injured up here in New Hampshire I run a Rehab response team for the hazardous materials district of Southeastern New Hampshire. We respond to building fires propane incidents brushfires long incidents. We also assist with training exercises and details we respond to an average of 30 calls a year the program I started in 2016 we have done about 60 calls altogether. Our rehab mission is to take care of all of the firefighters and first responders on the scene it be if it incident by hydration medical monitoring a place to rest food heating tents typically we get put next to medic unit most of the time Incase firefighter does need to be evaluated further by EMS. We have the Decon Capability if a fire fighters gear gets contaminated they can rinse it off well and then put them in a garbage bag so they can take them back to their stations and wash them out in the extractor units.

Thank you for your service.🇺🇸

Thank you all for your dedication!

Be safe just curious do you guys down in Pa have rehab teams? It’s a great opportunity to be involved in especially if you like doing a supportive role on the fire department we are 100% volunteer nonprofit be safe
