VIDEO: Fire departments salute health care staff at hospital in Comox Valley

Trucks large and small drove by facility in procession, with siren and flashers on

Fire departments from the Comox Valley paid a visit to the hospital Friday to say thanks to health care workers.

A lengthy procession of fire trucks and first responder vehicles drove slowly along Lerwick Road, with flasher and sirens going, as a salute at the Comox Valley campus of the North Island hospital. At least 15 vehicles were viewable in the short online video.

It’s just one of the ways in which people have been providing moral support recently for health care workers in the fight against COVID-19.
