We continue to be amazed by our communities’ generosity during this time. We would like to thank the City of Thornton Fire Department and Sachi Sushi Thornton for donating 2000 procedure masks. Sachi Sushi donated procedure masks to Thorton Fire, and they shared the donation with the North Area mutual aid departments.
We would also like to thank Unified Packing for donating 1000 face shields, Shot Shooter International for donating 150 hand sanitizers, and Eric and Kristen Nyquist for donating N95 masks. When our community says “we are all in this together,” our community really means it. We thank you again for your generosity.
If you or your company would like to make a donation to ACFR, please contact us at 303-539-6818.
We are still in need of the following items:
- N95 masks
- General use masks (surgical masks, dusk mask, etc)
- Clorox wipes, bleach

Stay at home order
Three Metro Denver health departments including Adams County, have issued Stay-At- Home orders to help stop the spread of COVID-19. The order goes from March 26th at 8 a.m. until April 17th at 11:59 p.m. unless officials determine it is in the interest of the public health to expire at an earlier date or time. The Public Health Orders require all people stay in their place of residence, and make every effort possible to conduct only essential activities such as grocery shopping, obtaining medications, and engaging in outdoor activities such as hiking or walking while following social distancing. We are all in this together, and we can all do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19.

A few thoughts from us at ACFR as we are all going thru this unprecedented time together. While what is being asked of us at times seems extreme, understand it’s vital in flattening the curve of this very contagious virus, while also keeping our loved ones as healthy as possible. It’s a wonderful time to assist neighbors if you can, and also spend time with family. It’s also an anxious time for people, so limit your news intake to outlets you trust, and talk to your loved ones if you are feeling overly anxious. Again, we are all experiencing this together.
Speaking of feeling anxious, don’t be alarmed if you see one of our ACFR crews in extra protective gear on a call. It may not in fact be a COVID-19 call, we are just taking all precautions possible.
As far as precautions you can take yourself, wash your hands often, practice social distancing, and avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Call your doctor if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough or shortness or breath. And if you feel you need to call 9-1-1, please tell the dispatcher of these symptoms, so we can protect our crews as well.
Finally, try and stay informed of this ever changing situation. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is an excellent resource, as well as the Centers for Disease Control. Take rumors out of the mix and replace them with facts. It’s much better for your mental health!

We know the spread of COVID-19 is a concern is for everyone. ACFR will be taking extra precautions to help protect our community and our First Responders. For the next 30 days, we are suspending all of our community events, including tours, ride alongs, and CPR classes. When crews are called to incidents where Coronavirus is suspected, we will be minimizing initial patient contact until more information is obtained. As always, we will be wearing our protective gear to limit exposure.
We want to remind the public, DO NOT call 9-1-1 to be tested for the Coronavirus. We are not capable of testing for COVID-19. Please call your doctor. For updated information on COVID-19 and more recommendations on stopping the spread of the virus, The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is an excellent resource.
