The COVID-19 outbreak in the United States has changed much in everyone’s lives. To continue serving our community during this unprecedented time, we are making changes to operations and the way we interact with the community to ensure the safety of our members and the community at large.
We’ve remained in contact with Dare County officials to keep informed of the latest updates concerning the pandemic. There have been changes to our everyday operations, but our commitment to serve remains at its highest. Career staff take extra precautions in daily cleaning and sanitizing around the station and trucks, and we’ve limited who can come into the station. We’ve tried to find alternatives to keep our volunteer firefighters engaged with tools like online training and regular updates.
We are all in this together: First responders, health care workers, our government leaders and, of course, you. Please remember to maintain social distance (minimum six feet), wear a mask when in crowded public spaces, wash your hands and refrain from touching your mouth, nose or eyes without having first washed your hands.
And, as members of our community, we are grateful for the folks out there that are working to keep us fed and supplied with groceries and essential items. Thank you to all the cashiers, stock associates, restaurant workers, delivery drivers, utility workers, bank tellers and everyone that goes to work everyday to keep the community moving! (Guess it isn’t possible to name every group, but we thank you ALL)
