The Brewster Fire Department is calling on residents to help them keep first responders safe. As a precaution during the COVID-19 outbreak, anyone quarantined in their home due to possible or confirmed COVID-19 exposure is asked to notify the Brewster Fire Department.
This can be done via email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or by placing a sign/note on the front door to alert firefighters and EMS personnel to take infection-prevention precautions before entering the home. Any Brewster resident calling 911 for an emergency is asked to tell the dispatcher so the information can be relayed to responding emergency services personnel.
There has been an entire fire company quarantined in Westchester county after they responded to a quarantined home and were not alerted before entering.
