South Pend Oreille Fire and Rescue has closed all of its stations to public gatherings as have many public safety agencies and businesses nationwide. I understand the decision is difficult, but community spread through high traffic public spaces is very likely. If you feel ill, it is important to remember to stay home isolated. If you are concerned you have symptoms of the virus, call your primary care physician to find out if they want to see you. Do not just show up at their office. If you feel it is a life-threating emergency call 911.

There is no shortage of information. When gathering information, it is important to remember to utilize trusted and vetted sites like those listed at the right. All of which share great information. In addition, SPOFR urges all local residents to follow these social media outlets for the most current State and County information.

Thank You,
Chief Mike Nokes
