Public Information & Community Relations

EF&R's Public Information includes ongoing activities to ensure the Agency has a strong public image. Public interaction and information is often conducted through the media via television, radio, newspapers, social media sites, and publications. EF&R strives to work closely with the media as a critical source and tool in providing fire safety education and emergency preparedness to the community we serve.

The Agency also utilizes social media tools to help us spread the fire safety, injury prevention, and emergency planning message to the public. These tools include Facebook, Nextdoor and Twitter. You can keep up on the latest fire department happenings, view photographs from actual emergency incidents, and see some of the community activities and events.

Patient Specific Medication and Treatment Program (Adrenal Insufficiency Program)

The King County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) system is designed to deliver positive patient outcomes to the citizens we serve. The system implements regional practices for common emergency conditions. In uncommon conditions, King County EMS has developed a patient-specific protocol that enables directed and specialized care for an individual citizen. This strategy helps focus local EMS personnel to the specific individual and their condition and helps assure the necessary therapy in the uncommon but real possibility that specialized treatment is required. Adrenal insufficiency qualifies as such a condition. EF&R and Paramedic personnel are trained regarding the indications and use of the special therapy. (view training procedures)  

To help deliver effective emergency assistance to individuals with adrenal insufficiency, we encourage you to work with EF&R to invoke the ‘Patient Specific Medication and Treatment Policy’. Program information can be found here
