COVID-19 Information & Advisories
Tips for calling 911 to Protect the Community and First Responders from COVID-19
Protecting the community and our paramedics and firefighters is paramount during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our 911 dispatchers will be asking the following questions of any caller requesting a service that requires face-to-face contact.
- Does the patient or anyone on the scene have a fever, cough, or trouble breathing?
- Has the patient traveled outside the United States or had close contact with someone who recently traveled outside the United States and was Sick?
- Has anyone been exposed to an individual known to have or suspected of having COVID-19?
- Has anyone on-scene tested positive for COVID-19?
We are asking our residents to review these questions with everyone in their household now. Knowing the answers ahead of an emergency will make it easier to recall should the need arise. Please respond honestly to the questions, as they help our first responders take appropriate actions and wear proper personal protective equipment to avoid exposure when they respond. Keeping our EMS/Fire personnel healthy will help us keep the Village of Lincolnwood safe!
