Please be advised that your Fire District personnel are equipped and well prepared to take care of our residents. We have personal protective equipment and a very specific operational plan in case we need to respond to a potential COVID-19 incident.
To help increase our awareness of potential cases, we are requesting to be notified if you are quarantined at home. This information will allow us to speed-up the deployment of our operational guidelines if we need to treat you in your home. Your information will be kept confidential.
Please call us at (503) 755-2710 and give us the following information:
Date you started quarantining at home
Time period you plan on being quarantined
Any underlying medical conditions you and/or members of your household have
We would also like to call you every three days to check on your wellbeing. If you do not want to be called, we will respect your wishes.
As public safety responders, we stand strong and ready to respond to care for our residents. We appreciate your cooperation. Thank you.
