Puget Sound Fire canceled a planned Open House, Push-In and 9/11 memorial event on Sept. 11 in Maple Valley due to the increase in COVID-19 cases across King County and the state.
“Unfortunately, as the COVID outbreak continues and case numbers remain high, we want to make sure we keep everyone in mind as we work to ensure the health and safety of our staff and guests,” according to a Puget Sound Fire statement released Tuesday, Sept. 7.
“As we observe the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, please take a moment to remember those that lost their lives and those that have been forever impacted,” according to the statement.
The Push-In was to dedicate a new heavy rescue rig.
Kent-based Puget Sound Fire serves Kent, Covington, Maple Valley and SeaTac.
