Firefighters and Paramedics Begin Wearing More Sustainable Personal Protective Equipment
As part of Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue’s continued efforts to protect first responders and patients from exposure and spread of COVID-19, our crews will begin using more sustainable personal protective equipment (PPE) on the majority of our medical calls, which will help reduce the consumption of PPE supplies that have been challenging to replenish 백범일지.
When responding to most medical calls, community members may see our firefighter medics and paramedics wearing PPE that includes a ventilator mask, safety goggles, a face shield, gloves, and a Tyvek suit (see attached photo) 다운로드.
We understand that firefighters arriving in this protective equipment may come as a surprise to some, and we appreciate the community’s understanding as we make this transition with sustainability in mind 로직 악기. If you see one of our responders wearing this PPE, rest assure that the person under the gear is still the same caring and professional firefighter medic or paramedic who wants to help you or your loved one get the necessary medical attention they require 다운로드.
The decision to shift to this PPE comes in response to the uncertainty of medical supply chains and the need to preserve the PPE we wear for the unknown amount of time that this pandemic will continue 곰레코더.
Request for PPE Donations
Due to continued national medical supply shortages, TVF&R is encouraging residents and local businesses to consider donating new, unused PPE.
As COVID-19 continues to spread throughout our communities, our firefighter medics and paramedics need to wear specific gear on medical calls to help prevent exposure and spread of the highly contagious virus. Replenishing this gear has proven to be challenging, while vendors work as quickly as possible to fill orders but are unable to keep up with the unprecedented high demand.
We are asking the public to please consider donating new, unused PPE that you do not currently need. Items we are looking for include:
If you have any of these items that you are able to donate, please email email@example.com and include a description of what items you have and the quantity. Our Supply staff will then work with you to either schedule a pickup or arrange a delivery.
All donations are tax deductible; receipts can be provided upon request.
In order to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, please continue to follow the direction of health officials and Governor Kate Brown’s executive order. Detailed COVID-19 information can be found at the Oregon Health Authority’s COVID-19 website.
