On Oct. 18 at approximately 4 a.m., Easton Fire crews responded to a report of a woman in active labor at a residence on Nancy Road.
Upon arrival, crews found the woman, later identified as Syreeta Essex, close to giving birth and began to transport her to the hospital. The situation progressed quickly with firefighters needing to leave the accompanying fire engine at the residence so that they could provide additional medical assistance in the ambulance.
The crew — Lt. Bill Fralick, Lt. Jeff Dupuis, Firefighter Jimmy Baptiste and Firefighter Christopher Brasells — delivered the baby boy while en route to the hospital.
Isaiah Essex was born to mother Syreeta Essex.
Mother and baby continued on to the hospital and were doing well upon their arrival.
“A baby delivery is a rare call for our firefighters and I commend the crew involved for their professional response and the care that they provided to their patients,” Chief Alexander said. “We are all looking forward to seeing mom and baby tomorrow morning.”
