ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Albuquerque Fire Rescue is taking extra precautions when responding to call, to protect themselves.

Firefighters and paramedics showed KRQE News 13 crews on Tuesday the protective gear they’ve suited up in when responding to calls where coronavirus symptoms are present. They also say family members should step outside of their homes when they arrive so that crews have more open air.

Officials ask that you call the coronavirus hotline before calling AFR if you believe is it virus related.
