null Kingston Fire & Rescue suspends public visits to fire stations
March 17, 2020 -
In order to ensure the safety of staff and residents, public access to all Kingston Fire & Rescue (KFR) stations, headquarters, and the training centre has been suspended until further notice. This takes effect immediately.
“I want to assure residents in unequivocal terms that Kingston Fire & Rescue will continue to serve our community. The decision to suspend public visits is made out of an abundance of precaution and taking into account public health’s recommendation to practice social distancing,” says Fire Chief Shawn Armstrong.
KFR’s public education engagements have also been suspended, until further notice.
The City continues to monitor the information released by the provincial Ministry of Health and other public health partners, including KFL&A Public Health.
