COVID-19 Response

As the region works together to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Fire District 7 continues to assess the situation and plan for our community as well. Today we are still operating at normal staffing conditions. Again, this situation is rapidly changing and we will keep you informed.

As we continue to follow guidelines established with the Stay at Home Order, Snohomish County Fire District 7 remains operational and responding to Emergency Calls, however, we have closed the public access to our Administration Building and all Fire Stations.

Further, Fire District 7 has decided to continue the cancellation of all public events and educational visits into classrooms and station tours, as well as the cancellation of the use of our meeting rooms for public meetings. This cancellation will last until June 1st. We will continue to assess the situation for further cancellations.

Thank you to everyone doing their part in practicing good personal hygiene and social distancing. For additional information about COVID-19 continue to follow Snohomish Health District on Facebook and/or visit their website www.SnoHD.org.

What we look like

Our biggest priority during the COVID-19 pandemic is keeping firefighters and everyone in our community safe. That's why you will now see firefighters wearing a mask, gown, gloves and goggles on every medical call we respond to, whether or not a patient is showing respiratory symptoms.

We're protecting you by trying to limit the potential spread of illness.

You can do your part to keep everyone healthy by staying home. If you must leave home, stay six feet away from others at all times.
