Guest Op-ed: An Important Message from the Chief of the Everett Fire Department Regarding Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

As the Everett Fire Department continues to monitor the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic that we are facing as a nation, we want to assure our community that the Everett Fire Department will continue to respond to any and all emergency calls.
A priority that I have as your Fire Chief is to make sure the members of the Everett Fire Department are able to provide the utmost professional emergency response, but in order to do that, first and foremost, I need to ensure that my department remains healthy and safe throughout any and all events. Please be aware when calling dispatch for any emergency you may be asked additional questions to reduce the potential exposures
to our members.
I would also like to notify the public that for the time being, the Everett Fire Department is suspending all fire station visits and apparatus tours to protect our members and visitors. This includes visits from family members of our department as well. We always appreciate the gesture of our community members delivering food to the stations, however, please understand that we cannot accept food donations at this time. My highest priority is to keep our department and the community safe and healthy. By following these precautionary efforts, we can reduce the risks and make sure everyone returns home healthy to their families.
I cannot stress enough the important of taking the various precautions to protect yourself and your loved ones. I appreciate your understanding as we take these preventive measures to guarantee our team is ready to properly respond to our community.
Fire Chief
Anthony R. Carli
