Hello neighbors and friends.
We hope this finds you in good health. We continue to answer the continued calls through this difficult time. In doing so, we see so many extraordinary people who care. So, in honoring those healthcare professionals on the front lines, we will participate in the “Sirens at Seven” celebration. Our firehouse sirens will activate at 7PM this evening to honor our healthcare workers, families and friends who are caring for us through these trying times. Take a moment of your time to come outside and applaud those who have gone the extra mile. If the weather is right, you will hear sirens from the surrounding fire departments doing the same tribute.
REMEMBER: Continue to follow CDC guidelines. We are in this together. PLEASE SHARE ...

Did you know that your Greenlawn FD Rescue Squad Volunteers have been responding to numerous calls each and every day to our friends and neighbors during this COVID-19 crisis? Many of the patients we transport are testing positive for the virus. We are asking all of you to PLEASE help us at the GFD, by staying home, and limiting contact with people, especially if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. Only call for an ambulance if it is a life-threatening emergency, due to hospital overcrowding. If you have to call, do not approach the ambulance! Tell the dispatcher if you are experiencing any fever, cough, or shortness of breath, and put a sign on your door to notify us before we arrive. Please allow us to put on our personal protective equipment so we can safely help you, and may continue to help others. If you have tested positive for the virus and/or you are self-quarantined, PLEASE LET US KNOW. If undiagnosed and we do transport you or a loved one, PLEASE notify us IMMEDIATELY with any positive test results obtained after a transport to the hospital. This is a team effort! THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!
