During the COVID-19 health crisis, you may notice that West Chester Fire Department firefighter/paramedics look different when they arrive at your home or place of business to assist you. Crews are wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) for their safety and yours.

Personal protective equipment includes goggles, N95 masks, gloves and gowns. During a run for service, first responders will wear this type of PPE and may provide you with a mask of your own, while continuing to maintain an appropriate distance until all parties are protected. Please put this mask on and wear it so that crews can safely address your needs.
