A Message from the Yukon Fire Department

A MESSAGE FROM THE YUKON FIRE DEPARTMENT:
We at the Yukon Fire Department want to do our part to help slow the spread of COVID-19. With that said and effective immediately, we will be suspending all station tours and visits from our firefighters to area schools and daycares for the immediate future.
We also ask that the public respect the safety of our first responders and, by extension, the Yukon community by not coming into the fire station with your medical emergencies. We understand your concerns and want more than anything to help you, but the fire station is like our home and we are not wearing the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) at all times. If we are not protected, neither are the citizens we are responding to.
Please utilize the protocol set in place by the CDC if you believe you have symptoms of the COVID-19 coronavirus, and continue to use the 911 system for other life threatening emergencies.
Thank you for your continued support,
Your Yukon Firefighters
