The Caldwell Fire Company is encouraging any person at high risk, or showing COVID-19 signs to do their part to protect themselves and others by staying home this year. The community’s safety is the fore department’s top priority, and the CFD asks for your support during the festival by practicing social distancing, staying six feet apart from people not in your group, by wearing face masks (though this is not mandatory), and by practicing proper hand sanitation. The CFD and its volunteers will be taking precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by wearing face masks, continuous cleaning of facilities and grounds, and by constantly washing their hands.
In an effort to protect our firemen and volunteers, if you are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19, services will not be provided to you. Stay up to date with public health guidelines from cdc.gov.
