Public Advisory - From Teller County Medical Providers
In an effort to protect you, the Teller Regional Medical Providers wanted to let you know that we have taken some steps to limit contact with first responders. Our goal is to provide you the latest information and manage expectations.
• All Fire Stations and Ambulance Facilities will not allow public visits.
• Please do not go directly to an EMS office or Fire Station if you feel you need medical attention. In the event of a life or death emergency, you should call 911.
• If you have any health concerns, your first call should be to your primary care physician or a Telehealth service. Do not show up at a Fire Station or Ambulance Facility and expect to be let inside with minor cold-type symptoms. Do not go directly to the Emergency Room for non-emergency conditions.
