Tamarac Fire Rescue Delivers Medical Supplies to Assisted Living Facilities in the City

The Coronavirus has undoubtedly disrupted the lives of many Tamarac families and businesses. Since Friday, Tamarac has seen an increase in the number of positive Covid-19 cases; that number is now reportedly at 61.

Across the country, as hospitals and medical facilities see a harrowing surge in Coronavirus cases, they are also beginning to report shortages of critical supplies. Recognizing this need, the Broward County government is stepping up to do as much as they can to assist in providing supplies, as long as they can source them.

The supplies are provided to various cities and, each city then provide the supplies to facilities that need them.  Members of Tamarac Fire Rescue delivered masks and gloves to all nursing homes and assisted living facilities in the city, according to the Tamarac Public Information office on Monday via Facebook.

Danny Stewart, a spokesperson for Active Senior Living Residence, an assisted living facility on the West-side of Tamarac, confirmed that the Fire Rescue team provided supplies to them as reported.  He said, however, that prior to this, they had enough supplies to last them 5 years.  Stewart claims, that the 72 bed facility is at 100% occupancy and was bought out by an overseas company 2 years ago after being owned for 20 years by a family. “We were bought by a multi-billion dollar company from France two and a half years ago, the same company that owns Portofino Towers in Miami…, God has blessed us, we are good for now” he said.

Broward County Government and Tamarac Fire Rescue are doing a good job providing the supplies to the homes, but do they really need it? How were the needs of these homes assessed? We reached out the Tamarac Information Office for answers and no comment was provided up to press time.
