Glastonbury (CT) Changes Protocol Amid Coronavirus Crisis

The Glastonbury Fire Department said it has made some protocol changes, specifically when responding to 911 calls, reports Eyewitness News 3.

When someone dials 911, dispatchers and firefighters now ask a series of questions. Specifically, if the person seeking help has traveled outside of the country and has a cough, a head cold or a fever.

Other impacts are that the department is facing a shortage of gloves and is waiting a new shipment. The first stations have also been closed to the public.
