Heartland Fire & Rescue, along with the Cities we serve, are closely monitoring the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) with San Diego County public health experts. The County of San Diego’s Health and Human Services Agency is working with the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention to monitor and respond to suspected cases in the San Diego County region. Heartland Fire & Rescue staff are participating in regular briefings with public health officials and public safety agencies. At this time, residents are encouraged to stay informed and learn what you can do to protect your health, and prevent the spread of the virus.
