COVID-19 UPDATE

Elk Creek Fire has declared a local disaster emergency.

Out of our commitment to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and to keep our first responders and community members safe and well, Elk Creek Fire is implementing a COVID-19 specific protocol and closing our fire stations to the public. This will take place immediately.

Protocol: Jeffcom 911 dispatchers are using screening protocols to identify patients with potential COVID-19 symptoms. If COVID-19 is suspected, responders will limit exposure as much as possible and then determine whether transport is needed.

Closure: The closure of Elk Creek Fire buildings to the public means that all public meetings, gatherings, classes, and tours are cancelled. This includes previously scheduled CPR classes.

We understand this closure may cause some inconvenience, and we ask for your support and understanding as we take measures to protect the larger community.

The Fire Department remains staffed by first responders and administrative staff. Personnel remain available to address all emergency response needs.

At Elk Creek Fire, the health and safety of our community members and of our first responders is, and will remain, our number one priority. We are closely monitoring for changes and new information. We will continue following the suggestions of public health officials and our medical directors as we navigate this rapidly-evolving situation, and we will implement necessary measures to protect our responders and the public from the risk of exposure.

Please watch our social media sites for updates as well as continued education and safety messages regarding COVID-19.

Elk Creek is having a busy start to this Sunday morning. There are high wind gusts, and we are already seeing trees impacting power lines. We have also just been working a small structure fire (shed/outbuilding) on Kennedy Gulch Rd. This fire has been knocked down.

Please keep your awareness up when outside today, especially around weak or dead trees - but all trees are susceptible to these winds!
