The Ferndale Fire and Police Departments are leading the effort to keep citizens safe, educated, and informed. Our emergency teams are working directly with State and County officials and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to implement preventive measures, provide community education, and update protocols to keep community members and emergency officers as safe as possible. To combat the virus:
The Ferndale Fire Department is well staffed with firefighter-paramedics who are highly trained to respond to situations exactly like this. Fire Chief Jack Pesha, a 20+ year veteran of the department, is receiving information directly from the County, the State, the CDC, and Homeland Security, and his team has been specially trained to help screen for identification and treatment of COVID-19. If you feel symptomatic or have any other health emergencies during this time, our firefighter-paramedics will respond promptly and with additional precautions in place to ensure that you receive safe, expedient care.
The Ferndale Police Department is overseen by Chief Vincent Palazzolo, a 20+ year veteran of the department. They're working as partners with the Fire Department in the management of the local COVID-19 response, and are responsible for responding to local calls for service or assistance, keeping our neighborhoods and business districts safe, and ensuring safety and order throughout the community.
