COVID - 19 Instructional Bulletin for Prairie Township
The following instructional bulletin was developed in conjunction with several Central Ohio Medical Directors (Emergency Physicians who direct local Fire and EMS agencies) based on information and directions provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Ohio Dept. of Health (ODH). This bulletin provides guidance on what to do if you feel you may have contracted COVID-19 (the illness associated with Coronavirus). Also included, are resources that can be used for further information gathering. If you call PTFD stations for information, you will be directed to these phone numbers and websites for answers to your questions. Be assured that your fire department is doing everything we can to keep ourselves and our community as safe and as healthy as possible. By closely following these guidelines you, too will be helping to keep us all safe and healthy.
Thank you for your support and cooperation!
Fire Chief Allen Scott
