We may look different...But we're still the same first responders!

During the COVID-19 Event (also known as the Coronavirus Outbreak) you may notice some changes to the way our members respond to emergency incidents. In addition to the various levels of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) seen below, our providers may be asking various screening questions upon arrival to scenes. These changes are following guidance of our healthcare oversight partners such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for response by Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and do not reflect measures the general public should be taking. We ask for the public’s cooperation and understanding as we try to our keep our first responders safe and on-duty to be able to continue to respond to emergencies in our community.
