An Important Message from Fire Chief Brad Bradley
The mission of the Northwest Fire District is to “save lives, protect property, and care for our community”. To ensure our capacity during these uncertain times we are enacting recommendations of Federal, State, and Local officials and will be limiting access to our administration building and fire stations until further notice. The novel COVID 19 virus requires human interaction to spread, and in the interest of protecting the health of our employees and members of the public it is imperative that we do our part to slow the progression of this pandemic.
Citizens who require non-emergent medical attention are asked to call their primary care physician. As always, 911 is available for emergency calls. Please advise the 911 operator if you have a fever, cough, or other symptoms of a respiratory illness. While the District never advises community members to seek medical care directly at a fire station at any time as the crews maybe out of the station, at this time it can create exposure concerns.
While crews ordinarily look forward to station visitors, the health and safety of the community takes priority, so effective immediately, fire stations will be restricted to NWFD personnel only.
To limit the impact to our construction partners, the administrative lobby on Massingale Road will be open every Monday and Wednesday from 8:00am-10:00am for plan drop off and pick up. We request that you observe 6 feet of social distancing between individuals while on site. We ask that if you are experiencing ANY symptoms of ANY illness that you arrange for an alternate person to drop off or pick up plans. We will allow only one person in the lobby at a time and request all others to form a line outside of the main entrance. Although we’ve limited public access to our facilities to help reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus our staff are currently well and working fulltime, we anticipate normal turn-around times.
Fire Chief Norman K “Brad” Bradley III assumed command of the Northwest Fire District on June 29, 2018 to lead the organization in its mission to Save Lives, Protect Property, and Care for our Community.
