COVID-19 Update
Municipality: Mount Joy
Date: Tue, Mar 17, 2020 17:00
Address: FDMJ

Mount Joy Borough has directed the closure of all borough buildings to the public. This includes the fire station. Fire Department Mount Joy has closed our building to the pubic and non-essential members until at least March 30, 2020. Only Firefighters, Fire Police, Administrative personnel and essential contractors will have access to the building during this period.

This is one measure that FDMJ is taking to ensure our continued service to the Mount Joy community. We have also modified our response plan in order to protect our members and limit the potential spread of COVID-19.

- Emergency calls of a serious nature will continue to be handled as normal.
- Calls that are less serious will be handled differently and will take into consideration social distancing and other precautions. You may notice much of the crew staying at a distance and not being engaged. Rest assured that if these firefighters are needed, they will be deployed.
- On medical calls, we are sending a very small crew to assist EMS. This crew will not engage except in life threats or when cleared by EMS. At times, it may be necessary for these firefighters to use much more protective equipment than we would normally use. This is out of an abundance of caution and in consideration of the safety of our firefighters.

Our primary mission is to protect the public and we take this seriously and will continue with that mission. In these trying times, we are giving extra attention to our risk management decisions to preserve our forces so we can continue to protect all of you.

As always, if you have an emergency call 911.

For non-emergency contact to the fire department:
Lancaster County Wide Communications 717-664-1190
FDMJ 717-653-1600

Watch for continued updates to this evolving situation.
