community covid-19 response statement

To Our Community:

We at 70 West Fire Rescue want to assure you that during this time of uncertainty with COVID-19, our personnel remain dedicated to your safety and wellbeing. We are constantly monitoring the COVID-19 situation and how it is affecting our world today and the daily changing guidelines being passed down by the infectious disease and public health experts to guide our plans relating to COVID-19. We are committed to taking extra precautions to ensure the health and safety of our volunteers while continuing to serve our community. Health and safety is a top priority so they are available and ready to respond to emergencies. We want to keep you informed with the changes you may see in our delivery of services.

⚠️If you Dial 911, expect the dispatcher to ask questions regarding flu-like symptoms. Especially if you have been running fever please let them know. These questions are not to delay response, but they assist firefighters and first responders to ensure the safety of themselves and their families they go home to.

⚠️Expect to see additional levels of personal protective equipment used by responders on medical calls to include gowns, goggles, and masks.

⚠️ Expect that there will be an increased distance between firefighters/first responders and patients during initial assessments of any conscious medical patients. Also note, a limited number of personnel will be used during the initial evaluation to minimize potential exposure to responders.

⚠️ We will also be limiting access to fire facilities to help ensure a safe environment for firefighters and first responders. We will not be conducting any group Fire Prevention activities until the danger of the spread of Coronavirus subsides. We also recommended that any needs you have for fire department related business - please give us a call at (501)767-8540 during business hours or email us at firehouse@70westfd.com and we will work to assist those needs.

⚠️ We strongly encourage the community to follow the guidelines set forth by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and maintain a safe social distance. These guidelines are there for everyone’s health and safety and too keep our health-care facilities from being so overrun that they cannot operate for those who need them.

We must follow certain guidelines to limit outbreak, exposure, and spread of COVID-19. The actions taken by responders may change depending upon the nature of the specific emergency. Please keep in mind that all precautions are made to ensure the safety of our responders which will allow them to continue to provide you with the service you expect. Please know that as always, YOUR SAFETY, YOUR FAMILY’S SAFETY, AND THE SAFETY OF VISITORS TO OUR COMMUNITY is our number one priority.
