Sedona AZ (March 18, 2020) – Out of an abundance of caution, and following the protocols recently announced by the city to protect citizens and staff from the potential spread of COVID-19, beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020, Sedona Fire District will limit in-person access to fire stations and the administrative office.
Citizens and visitors who require medical attention are instructed to call their personal physician or dial 9-1-1 for a dispatcher to direct appropriate care. Please advise them if you have a fever, cough, or other symptoms of a respiratory illness. It is not advisable to seek medical care directly at a fire station at any time, and at this time it can create safety and exposure concerns.
While crews ordinarily look forward to station visitors, the health and safety of the community takes priority, so effective immediately, station visits will be restricted to operational personnel only. At the Administration offices on Southwest Drive, public access will also be restricted, with in-person business limited. Please call 928-282-6800 during regular business hours Monday through Thursday, 7:00am – 5:00pm, to inquire about your non-emergency need. Arrangements can be made online and over the phone for most business with the District.
Sedona Fire District wants to take this opportunity to remind everyone to follow the recommendations of the county health departments, the CDC, and other health organizations by maintaining social distance, avoiding unnecessary contact with others, and washing your hands.
