Dear Community Members,

As a community we continue to closely monitor efforts to contain and stop the spread of CoVid-19 nationally and locally. The CDC has recommended Social Distancing as one of the most effective means to prevent spreading the virus. In an effort to protect the health and safety of the community and our firefighters, the Immokalee Fire Control District has implemented the following steps to maximize our Social Distancing without sacrificing emergency response to calls for service. 

  • All District sponsored travel for education, conferences, and professional development has been cancelled until further notice.
  • Restrict fire station access to only current on-duty personnel.
  • All station and site tours for youth, school, or community groups shall be postponed.
  • Postpone non-essential internal training that requires multi-company gatherings.
  • Deliver training, roll call, or meetings virtually with a conference call or web meeting.
  • Eliminate unnecessary internal in-person group meetings (cancel if possible). Require any face-to-face meetings to less than 10 attendees and spread out so they are at least six feet apart. No food, drink, or handouts are permitted.
  • Limit unnecessary routine movement of on-duty personnel within the community and interaction with large groups in public places. This includes retail, grocery stores, and restaurants.
