Public Service Announcement in regards to COVID-19

Due to the current COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, there is a strict NO VISITOR policy in effect for all Valparaiso Fire Stations at this time. In addition, all special programming is temporarily suspended, to include: annual fire inspections, child safety seat fittings, other community risk reduction events and classes, fundraisers, and multi-company trainings. We are all in this together, and we look forward to interacting with the community in person again when this situation has passed. In the meantime, follow CDC guidelines, stay up-to-date with City of Valparaiso announcements by clicking the "Read On" link on the banner at the top of the page, practice social distancing, and stay safe! Rest assured that Valparaiso Firefighters are still staffing all 3 fire stations 24/7 to provide emergency services as normal.
