|SCCEMS-MEDIC 94 COVID-19 Protective Measures|
|By EMS Chief Bob Hotchkiss|

With the recent outbreak concerns over COVID-19 we have instituted quite a few changes as to how we operate on a day to day basis. These changes have everything to do with reducing the risk of spreading a potential virus. While the changes will be mostly invisible to the public, we want you to know that we are going above and beyond and take this matter very seriously.
If you call 9-1-1, let the call taker know if you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms, have been tested and confirmed positive for COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.
Also, be aware that our paramedics and equipment that come to your house has been put through a very thorough inspection and cleaning process.
Due to COVID-19, Southern Chester County EMS MEDIC 94 paramedics and our partner MAY be wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), as shown, to help prevent the spread of the virus. Please do not be alarmed by this; our #1 priority is to protect our patients and our providers.
