The coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 which causes COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) is not to be taken lightly and there will be more developing information and statistics on this virus over the next several months. While we realize the severity of the global pandemic we feel that it is necessary to put the situation into perspective with other communicable diseases that we are exposed to as first responders. This video may come off to some as a mockery of the situation. We can assure you that as an organization which represents over 5000 career firefighters, EMTs, and dispatchers that are on the front line of this virus we are making every effort to keep our members informed and educated about the situation surrounding COVID-19. The message of this video is to educate and inform and the light in which it was produced was to alleviate some of the stress and panic that has been associated with the outbreak of this virus.
