Using 911
By Assistant Chief Chris Howell
March 17, 2020

This is a reminder to everyone in the Pingree Grove Fire District that calling 9-1-1 for assistance should be reserved for life threatening Emergencies only!

Please DO NOT call 9-1-1 for flu-like symptoms.

Call in 9-1-1 for non-emergencies, will put an unnecessary burden on an already strained Emergency Medical System.

If you have a true medical/fire emergency, calling 911 is the right thing to do!

If you have flu like symptoms, please call your primary physician to discuss treatment options over the phone.

Health care providers will give recommendations for treating your symptoms without tying up an ambulance and overcrowding the emergency departments and hospitals.
