VRFA Prepares for COVID-19

We along with other fire agencies in King County continue to collaborate closely with Public Health and King County Emergency Medical Services to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak. We are taking appropriate safety measures to protect our personnel while continuing to respond to medical emergencies.

Members of the public who think they may have contracted the virus and are in stable condition should consult with their primary physician via telephone, instead of calling 911 (unless symptoms are more serious).
