Alberta Fire Fighters To Receive Vaccinations




Alberta Fire Fighters To Receive Vaccinations


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                                                    


A Statement from Brad Readman, President of the Alberta Fire Fighters Association:


We would like to thank the Government of Alberta for recognizing the need for fire fighters to

immediately receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

45% of calls that fire fighters in Alberta respond to require us to administer some kind of

medical first response – making sure we are vaccinated protects not only the fire fighters out

on calls, but also the public that we serve.

We would like to thank Minister Shandro and Dr. Deena Hinshaw, as well as Premier Jason

Kenney for listening to our reasoning and finding a way to get fire fighters immediately

vaccinated. We would also like to thank every member of the public, the members of different

fire services and Alberta’s fire chiefs who called for this adjustment to the vaccination criteria.

Alberta’s fire fighters will continue to serve the public in their moments of emergency as

faithfully as we always have – just a little safer now.
