Surrey Fire Service stepping up to help vaccination efforts in Surrey

  • Page Views 224
  • Surrey, BC – Surrey Fire Service (SFS) is providing equipment and personnel to assist with the vaccination efforts in Surrey. SFS has supplied Fraser Health (FH) with its Mobile Command Post and Training Van for use in mobile vaccination clinics. In addition to the vaccination program that is administered at fixed locations, the FH mobile clinics have the added advantage of bringing vaccine directly to various hot spots in Surrey.

    “The premise of the mobile clinics is to broaden the opportunities and make it easier for people to visit a clinic by bringing the vaccine to as many places as possible,” said Mayor Doug McCallum. “That is why I am proud of Surrey Fire’s contribution to the mobile vaccination program and the integral role they play in helping Fraser Health’s vaccination efforts in Surrey. Getting as many doses into as many arms as possible is vital if we are to beat this pandemic. I urge everyone to take the opportunity to visit a mobile clinic.”

    To help bolster the number of people who can administer vaccine, a contingent of Surrey Firefighters have been trained to give the shot. The SFS members are deployed at various Fraser Health immunization sites.

    “The Surrey Fire Service is happy to collaborate with Fraser Health in its ongoing vaccination effort,” said Chief Larry Thomas, Surrey Fire Service. “SFS has had a long history of helping out beyond our traditional role of fighting fires and this is just another way for us to help protect the people of Surrey.”
