Pettis County Ambulance District is implementing a continuity of operations plan in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Until further notice, all buildings will be closed to all visitors and public traffic.
Exceptions will be made for any medical emergency that would require member(s) of the public to enter a station for treatment. Please call 911 if you are having an emergency should EMS units not be at the station.
Our crews will be instituting enhanced personal protective equipment (PPE) and procedures such as:
• Maintaining six feet of distance for initial assessment, when possible.
• Donning enhanced PPE on calls of suspected respiratory infection or flu-like symptoms.
• Placing a mask on the patient, when possible.
