Hanover Township Fire Department
Informational Release
March 26,2020

We wish to take a few minutes of your time in regards to the COVID-19 issues that our community is currently faced with.

Your Fire and Rescue Department with support and teamwork from the Township Administrator Sam Guesto, Township Commissioners, Township Municipal Staff, Department of Public Works in addition to our Medical and Police Services is confident that the hands on measures and operating procedures we have in place will provide us with the tools we need to safely navigate through this unfortunate issue at hand. We have been communicating on a daily basis in addition to sharing our resources and supplies with each other so we can keep everyone safe. We are receiving daily updated information internally about COVID-19 and we are using it as a tool to upgrade any responses we may be faced with.

We have taken the approach to secure access to the fire stations, North, South and Fire Headquarters, in an effort to keep our first responders safe. There is no reason for anyone to approach the fire stations looking for information as it is available through many social media outlets from the Hanover Township Fire Department​, Hanover Township Police Department​, and Hanover Township Community Ambulance. If you have a true emergency please call 911.

We truly appreciate the efforts from the community to ensure we are safe by the outpouring of support we have seen in the form of phone calls, text messages, etc. in addition to the donations of food, refreshments, etc. from the local establishments. These are the types of practices that make us true Americans and make us stronger on a regular basis.
We are asking for your continued support by practicing all of the guidelines that have been available from the onset of the COVID-19 situation. It is so important that you practice these guidelines so that this virus can become short lived. Unfortunately, in travels throughout the township in the last few weeks it has been noted that the grocery stores are to the point of overflowing at times. Please use your best judgement and follow the guidelines below:

** Stay home unless it is an absolute necessity that requires you to go out. ** Utilize hand sanitizer as often as possible when available. ** Wash your hands often and for at least 20 seconds. ** Practice social distancing of 6 feet from others if you must go out.
** Sneeze or cough into your elbow.
** Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose and mouth. ** If you have received notice that you are COVID-19 positive however do not have serious symptoms, please call your doctor, not 911. By doing this you could provide emergency room space for someone who truly needs care. **If you have need to call 911, please be prepared to answer questions about traveling, having contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or naturally if you have tested positive. You should offer any symptoms that you may be experiencing so that all responses can be handled appropriately to protect the first responders.
**If you are coughing or sneezing and have symptoms of the flu-like illness, please wear a mask or face covering to protect those who may be coming to assist you.

We, hopefully with the next posting can indicate that the community and country as a whole have defeated COVID-19 and that everyone can return to what we know as a normal lifestyle.

Yours in Emergency Services,

Hanover Township Fire and Rescue 

Joseph Temarantz Jr, Department Chief
