While businesses and restaurants are having a difficult time this week, so are public services.

Firefighters must respond to any emergency they’ve been dispatched to, and Northport Fire Capt. Tony Gill said that hasn’t changed.

What has changed is all the other things they offer residents.

“We’ve canceled a few activities and educational events, but it’s spring break and kids are out anyway,” Gill said. “We are taking extra precautionary measures to disinfect and decontaminate our units whenever we do respond somewhere.”
