During the coronavirus pandemic, the people we are all most concerned for are those that are considered high-risk and we especially are concerned when they have to go out to buy necessities. Well, the Glendale Fire Department proves once again why they are first responders as they are going above and beyond to help those in need during this pandemic. Firefighters are personally going to the grocery store to buy groceries and essential items for seniors and those who are considered high-risk of contracting coronavirus. Glendale Fire Chief Silvio Lanzas said,
"Our fire department stepped up. We have over 100 volunteers that are coming in off-duty helping them by going to the store, shopping... and delivering them to these seniors and other vulnerable people."
The fire department has said that any high-risk residents in Glendale who are unable to leave their houses can contact them between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and a team member will assist them. The phone number is 818-548-4814.
How amazing is this?!
