Call 911 at the first sign of a heart attack or stroke

Calling 911 is Safe

If you or your loved one is experiencing symptoms of a heart attack or stroke, please call 911 immediately. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Redmond has seen a 29% decrease in calls for heart-related illness and a 33% increase in deaths at home. Calling 911 for an emergency and fire response is safe and so are hospitals. Here are some additional safety tips:

Face Coverings

Protect One Another from COVID-19

Public Health - Seattle & King County issued a new health directive that strongly urges residents to wear a cloth face covering in indoor public spaces or confined spaces where it could be difficult to maintain six feet of physical distancing. Help protect our community against the spread of COVID-19.
