Due to the ongoing concerns associated with the COVID-19 outbreak, Pelham Batesville Fire Department will be putting the following into effect immediately. Our primary concern is for our Employees safety and we feel that these changes in the way we operate will lower our risk of exposure to the virus. We will be constantly evaluating the situation and the guidelines that are released and will make changes as necessary.
It is important that we all do out part to help reduce the spread of the virus. We still have a job to do and an obligation to the citizens that we serve, thus making it impossible to completely eliminate the risk.
All public meetings at any Station are postponed until further notice.
All public education activities at any Station that are scheduled are postponed until further notice.
All routine inspections will be suspended until further notice.
We apologize for any inconvenience these changes may cause to the citizens of our District. If you would like more information concerning the COVID-19 Virus please follow the link to the CDC's Website below.
