Snyder Firefighters Respond to 2020 COVID Challenges

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Snyder Firefighters have continued to respond to emergency situations, train, and meet. Members have adapted to new situations such as new Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) requirements, such as eye protection and the use of N-95 masks. Members have also adapted to changing Drill and Training environments, using Zoom for classroom training sessions, and meetings.

Due to COVID safety concerns, the 2020 Fire Prevention Open House was modified to a Virtual Open House streamed live on YouTube. Additionally, members collected over 3,000 lbs of food for a local food pantry in a drive-up drop-off. 

The Snyder Fire Department and Snyder Fire District have continuously worked together to provide important safety materials, training, and PPE to its members in an effort to keep them safe. 

The ability to pivot quickly has allowed the Snyder Fire Department to stay on top of the ever-changing and challenging environment due to COVID.

Due to restrictions and safety concerns, Snyder Fire Chief's and Line Officers held "Socially Distant" Officer Meetings over Zoom

During the height of the outbreak, members limited exposure to one another and held Virtual Drills via Zoom. This allowed training to continue in a safe, productive manner
