True Sacrifice Occurring Before Our Eyes
Acts of Sacrifice Abound Despite the Coronavirus Outbreak
Throughout this uncertain time, because people are doing everyday jobs, they are the ones that are vital to society. When threats to the whole of the Country occur simultaneously, we see every worker’s worth. We are so dependent upon one another, we must respect each other as we come out of this crisis. While the focus on healthcare workers is high the community needs to pay attention to the needs of those workers.
Because You Care
During these times the members of the Morningside Volunteer Fire Department need to leave enduring words of comfort to those they serve, especially with the elderly. As we become more isolated due to social distancing, those in the most need will be those who are vulnerable to the practice of isolation. The elderly struggle to remain relevant to society. The added burden of being a high risk during social interactions hurts in several ways. As a high risk patient family members stay away to avoid being a mode of transmission.
Be a Caring Partner
During this period, the EMS partner most effectively shows concern by ensuring prophylaxis measures are taken for the safety of all concerned. The Fire/EMS Service members shine during the past deadly outbreaks of disease periods. MVFD members past and present are commended for their dedication to service. During (2004 SARS, 2008 Avian Flu, 2010 Swine Flu, 2012 MERS, 2014 Ebola) highly contagious disease events high quality care is the standard. I am sure members remain dedicated because they take care of each other. The MVFD members are technically sound and insist on universal precautions.
