CKF&R temporarily suspending public access to its fire stations

Suspension includes CPR classes and fires station visits

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Central Kitsap Fire & Rescue will be temporarily suspending all public access to its fire stations, administration building and support facilities until May 1, citing “an effort to better protect our first responders and patients.”

The temporary suspension includes CPR classes, fire station visits, and use of multi-purpose rooms at the Meadowdale Community Station (41) and the Seabeck Highway Community Station (56).

“Firefighters and Paramedics in our community are on the front lines of the Coronavirus battle,” a CKF&R press release states. “Our first responders are unable to use the recommended social distancing techniques due to the lifesaving care that they provide. It is in the best interest of our community that our first responders are healthy and safe around our most vulnerable population.”

Though public access will be limited, the fire department will continue performing routine blood pressure checks and respond to life safety questions if the first responders are at the stations. The public is advised to knock on the door or ring the doorbell at any station so staff can assist you.
