“A lot of people don’t realize that firefighters do more than fires,” said CFA spokesperson Matt Osborne. “We respond to medical emergencies, we respond to car accidents, hazardous material calls. We deal with direct person contact, direct patient care.
“We’re just asking, when other health care providers, when other first responders are being included, we just feel it’s reasonable to be included as well in the vaccine program.”
The Calgary Firefighters Association (CFA) is sounding the alarm yet again after being excluded from the latest vaccine rollout for health care providers. Calgary fire crews say they are puzzled about being left out of Phase 2C.
