A top Langley fire official is reminding the public to be sure to tell emergency dispatchers if they may be a coronavirus exposure risk, after eight firefighters were put in isolation due to COVID-19.
Langley Township Deputy Fire Chief Bruce Ferguson said the firefighters were potentially exposed to the virus during a medical call on March 9.
He said Fraser Health notified the fire department, and the firefighters were self-isolated immediately.
“From all accounts they’re doing fine, Fraser Health is in contact with them daily, I’ve spoken to some of them,” he said.
“Other than that they’re worried about what this exposure means to them, they seem to be in good health and good spirits.”
