COVID-19 Operations


Dear Visitors and Citizens:

 

Our facilities are temporarily closed to the public.

 

Previously scheduled tours and community meetings are cancelled at this time until further notice. The Brazos County Precinct 3 Volunteer Fire Department is taking proactive measures to limit nonessential interaction between the public and our staff.

 

We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

 

Our department is still in operation, and our volunteers are still responding to calls for service from the community.

 

We continue to check our equipment and supplies on an ongoing basis to ensure that they are response-ready.

 

If you have an emergency, please Dial 9-1-1.

 

For Non-Emergencies, call Brazos County Dispatch at (979)-361-3888.

 

When you call for assistance needing responders via 9-1-1 or the Brazos County Dispatch non-emergency line, you will be asked additional questions pertaining to possible exposure or symptoms related to COVID-19. Please be patient with the dispatchers and answer their screening questions the best as fully as you can. These screening questions are based on best-practices, and are being asked in order to protect our responders and to provide you the best possible service.

 

When our responders (and personnel on an ambulance from the city) arrive, they will be wearing additional personal protective equipment (masks, eyewear, gowns, etc.). Please do not be alarmed. This is for both your protection and the protection of the responders.

 

If you have flu-like symptoms, have contacted someone suspected of having COVID-19, or have traveled recently, please immediately provide that information to the first responders.

 

For information about assistance available due to COVID-19, call 2-1-1. Some frequently asked questions are available here:

For administrative needs with our department, please email Captain David Dibello at ddibello@pct3vfd.com or call 979-776-6430 (if no answer, please leave a message, and we will return your call).
