This is Fire Chief Scott Sorenson, I wanted to share information with you about what we’re doing at Clark County Fire District 3 to keep our community and first responders safe.

The coronavirus, or COVID-19, is a concern for many people in our community. I want to reassure you that we have been responding to infectious diseases for a long time. This is not new to us; we have trained on this very situation

and are here to help you and your family if you need us.

Here’s what we’re doing to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, for example, we have closed our fire stations, but are still responding to 911 calls. If you need to contact us please call 360-892-2331. If you come to the station with

an emergency, dial 911, wait in the parking lot, and we will meet you there. 

When we respond to a medical call, we may show up with a gown, mask, eye protection, and gloves. Don’t be concerned. This is to protect you and first responders from spreading the virus. We also limit the number of personnel

entering the residence, and stage additional responders just outside, ready to assist if they are needed. We may place a mask on a patient to prevent any droplet transmission.

If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, please contact your health care provider by phone. Mild symptoms can be managed at home with over-the-counter medication. Only call 911 on the say-so of your health care provider, if you are experiencing respiratory distress, or for other emergencies. We do not have COVID-19 tests nor can we administer them.

Please know that we are ready to respond if you need us. We have trained for this very situation and can do so because of your financial support of our fire district. And we are grateful! As a community, we will get through this and emerge stronger for it. 

If you have questions about COVID-19, contact the Washington State Health Department hotline at 1-800-525-0127.
