A total of five members of the Wake Forest Fire Department (WFFD) assigned to Fire Station #2 have now tested positive for COVID-19. All are under quarantine and being monitored by health officials.

Testing will continue today for other firefighters across all three shifts at Station #2 that may have been exposed.

“We are continuing to closely monitor conditions and perform contract tracing, so our situation remains fluid,” said Fire Chief Ron Early. “We are in close contact with the Wake County Health Department to ensure we are doing all we can to implement control measures to prevent the spread of the virus.”

After being closed Saturday, Station #2 is currently open after the facility, along with all ladders, vehicles and equipment, were professionally cleaned and sanitized. 

The WFFD remains fully operational and is able to adequately fill all shifts and effectively respond to emergencies across Wake Forest. Anyone with an emergency is urged to call 911.
