EUREKA, Calif. (KIEM) – Since the recent rise of COVID-19 cases in the county, Humboldt Bay Fire has enforced new restrictions to prevent the spread of the virus.
The fire station is now closed to the public and they are not allowing visits to anyone including family members. Any questions or paperwork can be done over the phone or by email.
Educational classes for CPR, smoke detector installations, fire extinguisher training, and other meetings will no longer be held in-person and moved to zoom.
The station is trying to limit any interactions with the crew and workers who are not firefighters are to work remotely from home.
Community risk reduction specialist, Amy Conlin, reassures, “Everyone is masking, so in the stations, every time we’re out in the public, everyone has their masks on within the station and the crew’s encouraged to distance as much as possible.”
