The Roseburg Fire Department may intermittently close its West Harvard Avenue station because of COVID-19-related staffing shortages, according to the department.
If the station is forced to close, crews would be redistributed to the fire station at 700 SE Douglas Ave., and the station at 801 NW Garden Valley Blvd., because maintaining response times throughout the city would be best achieved by buttressing those two stations, Roseburg Fire Chief Monte Bryan said in a press release.
"Every effort is being made to limit closures and would be made to reopen the station as quickly as possible if a closure was necessary," Bryan said.
During a potential closure, signs would be posted on the Harvard Avenue station directing people in need to call 911.
Those who need to contact the fire department for non-emergency business are urged to call 541-492-6770 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
