FIRE CHIEF'S CORONA VIRUS MESSAGE
I am happy to report that the Foresthill Fire Protection District is doing well in this unprecedented time in our country. We have continued to serve you the community, without any disruptions. Our Fire Administration Office is closed to the public and administrative staff is only working there on essential business issues on a limited basis. The telephones are answered Monday through Friday as usual and daily business of the District is being handled remotely. The Chief Officers are working out of their offices or remotely from their residences. Stations are staffed at normal levels however are locked down to limit any exposure to the COVID-19 virus from visitors. You will see employees wearing different levels of personal protective clothing in the normal everyday setting as well as responding to medical emergencies. This is for your protection as well as ours.
Our medical supplies are currently adequate. We recently received a donation of 49 N95 masks for personnel to wear. Thank you very much. We have also received numerous handmade masks from a concerned citizen. Again, thank you.
I assure you that even if you do not see us out and about as we also follow the health guidelines, we are still preparing ourselves for the needs of the District.
This COVID-19 event has placed a new twist in the normal preparation and planning for the pending fire season. Plans are being made at many levels to provide the necessary changes.
Please continue to work on your defensible space and hardening of your homes and properties. I have noticed a lot of work being done. Let’s keep it up.
Stay Home and Stay Safe.
