Effective immediately all South King Fire & Rescue personnel are required to wear face-covering while on duty. This policy change is in response to recent CDC and IAFF recommendations that indicate that the use of face coverings can help in settings where social distancing is difficult to maintain. The face-covering must be worn while in public, in the common areas of the station, in apparatus and staff vehicles when riding with coworkers, or anytime that it would be difficult or impossible to maintain the approved social distancing practice of six feet.
