Working together, keeping you safe. Our steadfast commitment to the residents of Central County Fire & Rescue remains as strong as ever through the COVID-19 pandemic. As always, our CCFR crews are just a 911 call away if an emergency arises.
Preparedness is central to everything we do. Our CCFR crews are able to rely on their hours of training and professional familiarity with emergency medicine and the proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE) to safely serve you during times like these.
The health and safety of our crews is also an ever-present priority for our organization. We are doing everything we can to keep your responders safe and ready to respond.
As a District, we have had to make some decisions about our nonemergency operations. Being active in the community is one of the best parts of our job, but for now, the best thing we can do as a community is be diligent about social distancing to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Based on recommendations from the St. Charles County Public Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we are temporarily suspending some of our programming, including:
- Visitors are not allowed at our fire stations or District administrative offices until further notice.
- All nonemergency response programs are suspended until further notice. This includes:
- Fire Extinguisher Classes
- Car Seat Installation
- Annual Commercial Building Inspections
- Station Tours
- Community Engagement Events and Activities
- Reluctantly, we cannot accept any food donations (including store-bought items). However, we would ask that you consider donating to a local food pantry that is in need during this time.
We will all get through this together. Our CCFR crews thank you for your support, your words of encouragement on social media and your commitment to staying home to help keep first responders safe. If you are experiencing an emergency, call 911; for nonemergencies, please call 636.970.9700.
