A message about the Coronavirus from the Warwick Fire Department. We are constantly in contact with the Orange County Health Department and the Orange County Department of Emergency Services to keep our community and our firefighters safe. We have taken all necessary precautions and actions to keep our first responders on the front line safe. Please be patient with your family, neighbors and friends. Practice social distancing and order from our local restaurants to support our local businesses. Please be patient at Price Chopper and Shoprite; we don’t need to buy everything every trip or send our kids into a store for a bag of chips. Use common sense. Thank our Doctors, Nurses, LPNs, CNAs, EMTs, Warwick Police Dispatchers, Police Officers, Warwick Ambulance, Mobile Life, Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus and the O.C. Division of Emergency Services Police, Fire, Dispatch, EMS and Health for keeping us safe. We will prevail. Be safe, patient, and thankful.

Fire prevention is a function of the Warwick Fire Department. The goal is to educate the public to take precautions to prevent potentially harmful fires, and be educated about surviving them. It is a proactive method of reducing emergencies and the damage caused by them. Most importantly we want to keep our residents and our neighboring communities Fire Safe. Fire Prevention will take place this year from Oct. 5 through Oct. 11. The national theme will be announced on June 1. Follow NFPA.org to get up to date educational information on Fire Prevention.
