Jefferson County, Missouri: Office of Emergency Management

We've been working very closely with the Jefferson County Health Department to monitor the development of COVID-19. There are currently no cases in Jefferson County.

The Health Department does not, at this time, recommend limitations on mass gatherings or school closures due to the lack of community spread of COVID-19 within the region. This is a fluid situation and circumstances may change quickly.

We will continue to monitor the local situation throughout the weekend and beyond, and will make appropriate recommendations based on the most current information available.

What are your plans for the Eclipse?

Valle Ambulance Paramedics and EMT's will be working extra shifts and they are ready to protect you during your darkest day.

Valle Ambulance has been working for months planning for the Eclipse and the expected influx of visitors to our area. The District has been coordinating with local law enforcement, fire departments, emergency management, hospitals, and 911. Emergency Operations plans have been developed and will be implemented if needed.

Our main concern is traffic. Response times may increase. Especially on Monday during the eclipse and just after.

Starting at 8:00 am tomorrow the District will staff two additional ambulances. On Monday, every ambulance will be staffed. Paramedics will staff duty vehicles (Quick Response Vehicles) so we can get help to you quicker and UTV's will be staffed to transport patients out of congested areas.

Additional resources from other parts of the state are ready to assist if needed.

We hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable experience.

If you have any questions feel free to message us on facebook or email me at [email protected].
