When the call goes out, St. Paul firefighters respond no matter what, but in the current landscape it’s even more of an unknown. “In fire, you can see the smoke or feel the heat or see the flames, with this it’s an invisible virus that you can’t detect until days afterwards,” said Deputy Fire Chief Roy Mokosso. In this new world, things are changing when it comes to how the St. Paul Fire Department operates. As soon as crews step foot into the fire stations, they get a health screening. They’re asked how they’re feeling, if they’ve been around anyone with COVID-19 and they get their temperature taken before and after each shift. Those given the approval to work have other new procedures to follow.
