As we continue to take in donations, we wanted to make a quick shout out to all of you who have already donated. For those of you who have dropped off goodies or supplies, thank you very much! Thank you to Lexie Palmatier Vincelette & the Pownal Elementary School for the sanitizer, gloves, wipes and masks, Janet Jennings Levine for the goodies, Debra Deming Walsh, Bobby Knapp & Kim LaCross Smith for the cloth masks, and thank you to EVERYONE for the continued support.

We continue to need:
-N95 Masks
-Disposable or washable gowns
-Cloth Masks

Please consider donating. Donations can be dropped off at our station at 22 Ladd Road, Pownal VT. We ask that all supplies be in preferably new or usable condition. Thank you for your support during this time as our crews face daily challenges in the care that we provide. We ensure, that you will continue to receive the best care possible.

Remember to stay home, wash your hands frequently and stay safe! Thank you!

We would like to thank those of you who have reached out or already donated supplies. As many personal protective equipment remains on national backorder we are working with a dwindling supply. As we continue to ensure that our crews have the protection they need, we are still looking for donations.

We are looking for:
-N95 masks (universal or fitted)
-Surgical masks
-Cloth masks
-Disposable gowns
-Sanitizing wipes
-Hand sanitizer

We have began to re-use the N95’s that we have by placing the cloth masks over the N95, in order to avoid contamination. The cloth masks get washed after each patient contact which allows for the re-use of the N95 mask. Shortages of all masks and personal protective equipment will likely remain in high supply and demand over the next few months as companies catch up with shortages.

Please consider donating. Donations can be dropped off at our station at 22 Ladd Road, Pownal VT. We ask that all supplies be in preferably new or usable condition. Thank you for your support during this time as our crews face daily challenges in the care that we provide. We ensure, that you will continue to receive the best care possible.

We know you have all heard it a hundred plus times by know, but we wanted to reiterate how important it is to:
1. Wash your hands
2. Don't touch our face
3. Sneeze into your elbow
4. Cleaned frequently touched surfaces
5. Stay home if you are sick to avoid spreading it to others

We are taking the appropriate steps to ensure that our ambulances, as well as the building, are as clean as they possibly can be and are stocked with the appropriate PPE, for both your safety and ours.

The Vermont Department of Health requests that you don't overwhelm 911, EMS, and emergency rooms if you are experiencing mild symptoms (fever, cough, etc.) or are concerned about exposure. Contact your primary care provider or resources listed by VDH. Please reserve calling 911 or visiting the ER for emergency symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest pain, life threatening emergencies, and changes in mental status, etc.

Stay Safe everyone!

We're asking for your help: Please don’t go to the hospital emergency department if you are sick, unless you have a life-threatening emergency. If you’re sick and want to discuss testing for COVID-19, contact your health care provider BY PHONE. This is the best way to help hospitals respond to this public health threat and protect all Vermonters. Thank you!

Northern Berkshire Emergency Planning Committee

Regional Coronavirus COVID-19 Update:

The Northern Berkshire Regional Emergency Planning Committee (NBREPC) wishes to advise our partners that a very informative meeting was held this morning. The focus of the meeting was to share concerns, plans, expectations, and the active measures we are taking to help mitigate the effects of the coronavirus on our citizens.

Although we know we will experience additional cases and are prepared, the actions we have already taken will have a positive impact throughout our region. Our local schools have been completely cleaned and disinfected, our 9-1-1 dispatchers have been provided with a modified call query in an attempt to isolate potential coronavirus cases and we continue to monitor the Board of Health, Department of Health and CDC recommendations.

We assure you that communication has been open and existing relationships with local, state and federal partners have been enhanced to meet our growing needs and concerns. The NBREPC has activated their management team, who communicates directly with the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA). Our leaders are listening. This is apparent by Governor Baker’s enactment of a State of Emergency this afternoon.

We understand that this is overwhelming to many. Please do not allow panic and fear to prevail. As a reminder, there are a lot of proactive things we can do as a community to limit risks.

These include:
1.Remain Calm
2.Wash your hands
3.Disinfect commonly touched services
4.Limit unnecessary exposure to large crowds
5.Contact your physician if you have flu-like symptoms
6.If you need to call 9-1-1, provide as much information about your symptoms as possible and understand that dispatchers may ask you additional questions
7.Know that while on-scene response may look different, our first responders are trained to act appropriately, efficiently and in your best interests. Please be patient.

Thank you for your continued support,

Respectfully,
Amalio Jusino
NBREPC
Co-Chairman

We understand there is some anxiety with the news of a COVID-19 case diagnosis in the area. This disease is a respiratory infection. It is transmitted much like other respiratory infections. Precautions to take year round include:
🏥Wash your hands.
🏥Don't touch your face with your hands.
🏥Clean frequently touched surfaces.
🏥Stay home from school, work, or public places if you are sick.
🏥Call your primary care, urgent care, etc. before you go if you have fever and respiratory symptoms.
🏥Routine use of a surgical mask is not helpful unless you have symptoms to prevent spreading illness

Be sure to follow reliable and updated sources for more info such as Southwestern Vermont Medical Center, Vermont Department of Health, Centers For Disease Control CDC, Vermont Emergency Management

AEMT students practiced their EMT skills today including splinting, bleeding control, CPR, trauma assessment, airway & ventilation.

Are you ready for snow?!

November snuck up on us this year! We are expected to get 2-3inches of snow, starting early Thursday night! Temperatures will be in the low 20's...bbbrrrr! 🥶

Remember to check on your neighbors, don't leave your pets outside for too long, take breaks if you need to shovel! Stay off the roads if you don't have to go anywhere, and if you do be sure to plan for a longer commute time!

Stay safe!

Updated snowfall forecast for Thursday afternoon into early Friday. Initial rain should change to wet snow towards sunset in most areas. Valley areas likely will see less than 1 inch of wet snow but the hill towns and higher terrain should higher amounts. #nywx #vtwx #ctwx #mawx

We would like to wish everyone a happy and safe 4th of July and long weekend!

We would like everyone to keep in mind firework safety if you plan on doing your own firework display! Fireworks can be very dangerous and should be left to the professionals, they can injury more then 10,000 people per year!

Along with the fire safety’s would also like to remind everyone to stay hydrated and out of the heat as much as possible this holiday weekend as it is supposed to be very warm out!

Happy 4th everyone, stay safe!
