Maintaining Personnel and Organizational Resilience during the COVID-19 Pandemic

On Friday 9/9, leadership from GFC was asked to present at the 4 day virtual Pennsylvania EMS Conference. Their topic, “Maintaining Personnel and Organizational Resilience during the COVID-19 Pandemic”, examined the ways GFC prepared for, and met the challenges of this unprecedented worldwide health event. Presenters included Dr. Robert Fleming, Deputy Chief of Administration, Robert Horton, Deputy Chief of Health and Safety, and Grant Everhart, Executive Director and Deputy Fire Chief.

Their presentation highlighted the creation of a Pandemic Committee, which met weekly to protect our crews by assessing conditions and responding in a strategic manner.  

At no time during the pandemic were the stations shut down due to quarantine, and were able to provide uninterrupted 24/7 service to the community.

The pandemic response was a team effort requiring cooperation and collaboration between GFC Leadership, Volunteers, Career Staff, Local Government, Chester County, and The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. GFC responders were kept safe so that they could keep our community safe.
