Firefighters Work To Protect California Hospital

October 5, 2020

In Napa County, Calif.’s Deer Park neighborhood firefighters worked to keep the Glass Fire flames from getting closer to homes and the St. Helena Hospital, according to an article on the ABC7 website.

On Sept. 28, 55 patients were evacuated and transported to other Bay Area hospitals.

Firefighters from Contra Costa County and San Ramon Valley drove ambulances to the facility to help get patients out.

The medical center said it moved patients out of an abundance of caution because of the quickly growing Glass Fire. This is the second time the hospital has evacuated this fire season, according to an article on the CNN website.

A skeleton crew stayed back to wet the roof and make last-minute arrangements. They were cleaning all the air filters and placing scrubbers throughout the hospital to keep the air safe.
