Everyone should be aware of the COVID-19 virus pandemic.  The community should know that your first responders are taking care to be prepared to respond to incidents involving COVID-19, and also are taking all measures possible to avoid contagion in order to continue to be able to respond for our community.  You can help by staying informed, following the shelter-in-place orders, and maintaining isolation and good hygiene practices.  If we respond to an emergency at your home please do not be surprised if we keep our distance as much as possible, if we look like aliens in our "personal protective equipment (PPE)", or if we, if appropriate, try to move the action to an outside or more ventilated area.  All of that is in service of protecting both your health, and ours.

As a community it is extremely important that everyone stay informed and follow the guidelines laid out by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and our state, county, and local health providers to slow the spread of COVID-19.  The spread must be slowed down in order to keep down the number of cases at any one time, to allow health facilities and providers to give good card and to not be overwhelmed. 

Please see additional information on our COVID-19 page.

We will get through this as we have gotten through all of the challenges that have been thrown our way the last few years (fires, floods, more fires, power shutoffs...)! 

Be Well,

- Fire Chief Bonnie Plakos
