Fire-Rescue Asks for Community Help: Donations of Emergency Medical Supplies
Fire-Rescue is asking for the community's help with donations of medical masks, gowns and other medical supplies.
The County, State and Federal agencies are facing shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE). Augusta County is asking the community for assistance in replenishing our dwindling supplies.
If anyone has medical/surgical masks, N95 masks, dust masks, protective gowns, tyvek suits or any type of PPE they think would be helpful. Other items needed include alcohol based (60% alcohol or more) hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes (like Clorox) and Clorox cleaners. A full list of approved cleaners can be found on the CDC web site.
Homemade face masks will also be acceptable, if you have the ability to sew and would like to make some a great resource for that is https://patchworkplus-quilting.com/facemasks.
Please contact Augusta County Fire-Rescue 540-245-5624 ext. 1. The drop off location for any supplies will be at the Fire-Rescue Training Center located at 115 Dick Huff Lane, Verona VA.
Thanks for your support and understanding in these trying times. Please stay safe and look out for your neighbors.
