Fire Chief Christopher Russo and Police Chief John Dunn, like other town officials, are finding ways to deal with the coronavirus crisis that will help keep their firefighters and police officers and the public safe while continuing to provide emergency services and other assistance.
Both departments’ lobbies remain open to the public, but residents are being asked not to enter either lobby for non-emergency reasons or if they are feeling ill.
Residents are advised to contact 781-925-1212 for non-emergencies. During this time, nonemergency calls in some instances may be handled by telephone or email with a staff member.
As always, residents are encouraged to call 911 for all emergencies and to contact the Hull Health Department or the state Department of Public Health for information and advice regarding the virus.
“We have received recommendations from multiple public safety and health authorities on how to best protect our personnel and their families, and this information has been provided to them,” Police Chief Dunn said. “As always, we continue to work in conjunction and cooperation with the Hull Fire Department. They are assisting us here at the police department with any needs we have regarding the coronavirus.
“We ask the community to continue to follow the advice of health authorities regarding staying at home and away from large gatherings.”
Residents are invited to sign up for CODERED Messaging at https://www.town.hull.ma.us/home/pages/code-red-links. This system, used for emergency and townwide notifications, has been in place for several years.
