Our own Kyle Brown, on the RCS Maintenance team, is known around campus as someone who’s always ready to help. When he isn’t at RCS, Mr. Brown takes his ready smile and can-do attitude to the Bedford Hills Fire Department (BHFD) where he’s been a first responder for nine years, and the Mount Kisco Volunteer Ambulance Corps (VAC) where he’s been for six years.
“My two great uncles have been members of BHFD for many years. Being a member of both the BHFD and the Mount Kisco VAC was instilled in me since I was little and I always wanted to carry on their legacy,” Mr. Brown says.
At BHFD he’s a driver for calls and an interior fireman. At the Ambulance Corps, Mr. Brown is a driver where his role is to ensure the crew and patients get to and from the calls safely. He’s CPR and first aid certified. He also assists the Operational Captain with his daily duties as the Operational Coordinator, and runs the Youth Corps program for members between 15-18 years old who are interested in learning about EMS.
“At the Fire Department not much has changed for me with respect to COVID-19,” Mr. Brown says. “At the Ambulance Corps, however, there are many rules now about the PPE we need to wear in terms of being around people who are potentially COVID-19 positive. We wear gowns, N95 masks, and surgical masks.”
We’re proud to have Kyle Brown so bravely serving the Bedford/Mount Kisco community!
